Mission and Vision

Mandated by the Archbishop, J. Michael Miller, UBC Catholic Campus Ministry at Saint Mark’s College is responsible for animating the faith life of the Roman Catholic staff, faculty, and students at the University of British Columbia and at the two Catholic Colleges in Vancouver, Saint Mark’s College and Corpus Christi College. The team provides chaplaincy services (liturgical, sacramental, and spiritual support), as well as a comprehensive model of campus ministry with retreat, service, and activity programming that allows entry points for students at any stage of their faith lives.

The Basilian Fathers contributed greatly to the development of our programs. Their life and mission animated Saint Mark's College for so many years.

As a team, the campus minister, chaplain, and student interns engage the challenge of providing excellent leadership, solid liturgies, great enthusiasm, a creative vision, and a place of ever-discerning faith.

As we continue to grow, we strive to create new and exciting programs to meet the needs of our diverse community. We encourage you to explore the many opportunities you have here to deepen your love for and relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church, to investigate different forms of prayer and worship, and to deepen your understanding of how God's love and grace are at work in your life.

We recognize that everyone's spiritual journey is unique and holy. We are here to assist you personally and through referrals. If we cannot walk with you in a way that you need us to, we will strive to put you in contact with someone who can. It is our hope that you will grow in relationship with God and that God will be glorified in your life.

Be assured of the UBC Catholic Campus Ministry’s prayerful support throughout your post-secondary education.
