Ministry Programs


The Office of Mission and Ministry now has an interfaith prayer room located in the lobby of Bold Hall, in room 214.  The room is open daily to offer students of all faiths a private place to pray and reflect, using their own faith traditions.  


Were you active in your church’s youth group back home?  Why not join the campus ministry club and become active in planning and hosting spiritual experiences for yourself and your fellow students!  We want to hear from you about prayer that is meaningful, events that are fun, and how you want to grow as a spiritual person.  Visit our website or stop in BH 216, and see what campus ministry can be with you and your ideas.


For those thinking about confirmation and those interested in joining the Catholic faith, this is a program designed especially for you. The RCIA process is a combination of learning, prayer, and dialogue in a comfortable atmosphere in which the participants reflect on their faith journey and discern the steps to deepen their relationship with God in the Catholic faith. For more information, contact Sr. Elena Almendarez at 412-536-1053 (x1053) or at

L.I.F.E. (Living in Faith Everyday)

Our non-denominational fellowship group is open to all students and meets Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m. in the Ryan Room. Students are invited to share faith, fellowship, prayer and praise as they come together to reflect upon God's action in their lives and the role of faith in their daily lives. This weekly activity is part of our partnership for the Coalition for Christian Outreach. Students enjoy Christian music and Worship lead by students, interaction with students of all faith traditions, relevant discussions and messages from a Biblical viewpoint. Students can also be involved in student leadership, service projects, and small group opportunities throughout the school year..


The Providence World Café, located in the Wright Library, is staffed by Mission and Ministry staff, and encourages students to engage in meaningful conversations around peace and justice topics.  Groups from La Roche Experience classes and ESL regularly use the café for discussions.  Most weekday mornings free coffee and cookies are available.


The Sisters of Divine Providence are praying for you! Don't forget that if you have a special prayer intention you want them to pray for, drop a note in the basket located at the information desk in the University Center. The intentions are taken to a chapel at Providence Heights daily by Sr. Rose Michele. If you are feeling alone, remember, you are not. Click here to submit your prayer request online.
