If you're called to serve or enjoy helping people - our Campus Ministry programs may be just for you.
Campus Ministry Offers:
Dominican Young Adults
Dominican Young Adults is an organization for young adults to strengthen their faith, build friendships, and become a part of the larger Dominican family. Each chapter of DYA USA provides a different response to the needs of its location. Dominican College’s chapter is in collaboration with St. Thomas Aquinas College and meets approximately once per month.
A Eucharistic celebration is held every Sunday at 8p.m. in the Rosary Chapel. Students may volunteer to serve as Readers, or as Music or Eucharistic Ministers. Please call the Office of Campus Ministry for more information, 845-848-4031.
Confession & Counseling
By appointment or after Mass
Pastoral counseling is available to all students through the Office of Campus Ministry. Chaplains of different faiths may be contacted to offer religious services for students. The Director welcomes conversations with you about your spiritual needs and desires, questions you have, and challenges you face. The staff of Campus Ministry works closely with the Counseling Office and other groups to provide grief support sessions for students who have lost parents, grandparents, siblings, or friends.
Campus Ministry Club
This club provides a friendly setting for students to socialize and enjoy themselves as they grow emotionally and spiritually. There are discussions, mutual support and prayer, service opportunities on campus and trips to prison and the Head Start children of migrant farm works, parties, weekend retreats, etc. The Campus Ministers serve as club advisors. Everyone is welcome.
Relay for Life
Relay for Life raises money to fight cancer. This annual fundraising event culminates with a wonderful night of walking, fun, and reflecting on lives that have been impacted by cancer.
Under the direction of Campus Ministry, Midnight Run volunteers distribute food, clothing, blankets and other items to the homeless poor on the streets of New York City.
Big Brothers Big Sisters
Campus volunteers are also recruited by Campus Ministry to serve as mentors with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Rockland County. These volunteers help children reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships with mentors.
Students travel to Goshen, NY, to the House-On-The-Hill Head Start Program for over 70 children of migrant farm workers. Our volunteers interact with the children, and also work inside and outside to enhance the physical environment for the children.
