About Us

Hofstra Catholic Campus Ministry is the center for the Catholic faith and community on campus. Our team is dedicated to making sure students, faculty, and staff have a comfortable and familiar space. Our campus ministry team puts on numerous events each week including: Sunday Mass, night Mass, women’s group, men’s group, apologetic meetings, and Bible studies. We provide full time support to our students through confidential meetings and prayer. Our campus minister and Chaplain work closely together to ensure that Hofstra students always have someone to talk to about their faith, or developing their faith.
