Iversen Center for Faith exterior

The Spiritual Heart of Campus

The Iversen Center for Faith is the home of Campus Ministry, the Hoedeman Gallery of Sacred Art, the Multifaith Meditation Room, Guy and Barbara Schoenecker Hall, and amphitheater. It provides members of the university community a place to gather where faith can be celebrated and explored.

As a Catholic institution, the St. Thomas community is an increasingly diverse community with members from many faiths. Campus Ministry includes Catholic, Jewish, Muslim and Protestant faith leaders.

We, of all faith traditions, are called to be bearers of hope, for the present life and for the life to come, and to be witnesses, restorers and builders of this hope, especially for those experiencing difficulties and despair. May we, the community at St. Thomas all be renewed in that divine hope.
