Supporting All Faiths

Led by our Office for Mission, as a Catholic University we are committed to enabling the spiritual growth of all in our St. Thomas community. Many St. Thomas students, faculty and staff are Catholic. However, you’ll be in community with Buddhists, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Protestants, agnostics, atheists and people who are in the process of discovering a faith. We believe these differences make our university whole and every one of our students has the opportunity to get a great education that includes spiritual discovery. While on their journey, we support each individual with Catholic priests and other professional spiritual leaders on campus — our pastoral team includes a Jewish rabbi, Protestant minister and Muslim faith leader.
