Christian Student Community

Christian Student Community

Students of all Christian denominations are welcome to gather, share and work together toward a faith-filled community at CSS.

Christian Student Community is an ecumenical Christian group. Opportunities include a weekly praise and worship service, small groups, and retreats. We coordinate an All School Praise and Fellowship event and Saints Christian Week which are opportunities for students from all Christian groups on campus to meet up and worship God all together.


Praise and Worship

Join the Christian Student Community for our weekly worship: Praise & Worship. Join us on Monday nights from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in The Oratory (Somers 190E). It is a time of worship with live music and thought-provoking speakers, activities, and discussions where you can grow in faith and build relationships with other Christians on campus. All are welcome!


Retreats are offered multiple times throughout the academic year. Typically retreats take place on Friday evenings, but we also offer overnight retreats as well. Our retreats give students a chance to relax, pray, worship, hear speakers, and discuss their faith. Retreats are facilitated primarily by our student leaders for the Christian Student Community. Retreats are free for students and transportation is provided.

Spiritual Direction

In collaboration with the St. Scholastica Monastery's Center for Spirituality and Enrichment, Campus Ministry is able to offer spiritual direction to students at no charge.

Spiritual direction is an opportunity for you to explore your faith/spirituality and to deepen your relationship with God. Spiritual direction is simply a conversation between two people, in which one person consults another, more spiritually experienced person called a spiritual director, about the ways in which God is breaking into their life.

To request a spiritual director please complete this form. For more information contact Jessica Ellingson, Director of Campus Ministry, at

Local Places of Worship

All students, staff, and faculty members are encouraged to participate in our College Liturgies. All Catholics are especially encouraged to make the College Liturgies a fundamental part of your faith life here at the College of St. Scholastica. For those who are not Catholic and are looking for a place to worship within the Duluth community, the Duluth area offers a wide variety of houses of worship. Here is  a list of local non-Catholic churches.
