Using prayer, shared experiences, and explorations of faith, we can enhance the spiritual life of ourselves, our College community and beyond.
Spiritual formation is an integral component of every academic program at St. Mark's College. Once a month, on the Saturdays that class is scheduled, students gather with the Campus Ministry team to discern their unique vocation through spiritual readings, professional workshops, and guided prayer and retreat opportunities. It is a way to build community, as well as to get students to connect their academic learning and their prayer lives.
All graduate students, alumni, and members of our neighbouring community are welcome. Learn More
Faith Development with BA Students
Committed to the care and development of the whole person, faith development is the intentional practice of setting aside time to engage in conversations about life, faith, and our own personal relationship with Jesus. Once a week, student cohorts gather with a member of the Campus Ministry team to grow in faith and community through spiritual readings, attending conferences, and participating in guided prayer and retreat opportunities.

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
Christians of all denominations and all persons of good will are invited to gather to pray for unity during the annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.
Leadership Prayer Breakfast
This annual event, hosted by City in Focus
, attracts over 1,000 people from all walks of life: public servants, business leaders, not-profit organizations and students. Together, we offer support and pray for those who serve in elected positions in our community. A Q&A session held after the breakfast concludes the program.
Every year, our students engage in this opportunity to gather with local leaders who have vast experience in prayer and action, participating in God’s work for good in our city and around the world.
We welcome persons from all faith backgrounds. Inter-faith dialogue and collaboration at and from our campus enriches our community socially and spiritually. Aware that not all who belong to our community are Catholic and that we cannot meet everyone’s spiritual needs, we are committed to making connections with people who can.
