A Brief History Of Saint Mary’s Catholic Campus Ministry:

The history of St. Mary's Catholic Campus Ministry goes back to 1959. In the 50+ years of the ministry, known in the past as The Newman Club, Christ the Teacher, The Catholic Student Center, and St. Mary's Chapel, the ministry has existed to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ, form life-long disciples and build up the Kingdom of God.  Thanks to Fr. Ron Groschen, a number of students at the time, and alumni from the earlier days of the ministry, we have a detailed accounting of the history of the ministry up through 1991. Much has happened in the last 20+ years as well (hopefully an account can be put together for this time).

Thank you to Fr. Ron and all those who helped compile this historical document.
