Spiritan Campus Ministry

Spiritan Campus Ministry is fortunate that the University supplies our weekly needs to provide Spiritan Campus Ministry events each night. However, we have a large project that cannot be completed without your assistance. Your donations help us to perform yearly renovations and once-a-year programs that enrich our students. 

With your generous support, we were able to upgrade the sound system in the chapel. This has helped us tremendously to enhance the liturgical experience. Thank you for your generosity! Please help us with the next step of our multimedia sound system evolution as we aspire to use the chapel as a place for worship nights, concerts, and recitals!

Your donations could help to fund:

Renovation of the Sound System: 

Your generosity last year helped us to address our immediate need for basic sound system requirements after our old system failed. Microphones, sound boards, mixers, receivers and amplifiers were purchased to be integrated into our future multimedia sound system! 

We are looking to invest in a state-of-the-art multi-media system to combine text, graphics, audio, video, and other technologies to promote quality programming from the Chapel. Our vision includes creating and broadcasting multi-media liturgical celebrations, hosting concerts in conjunction with the School of Music, and utilizing new and imaginative programs yet to be developed.

Investing in our multimedia sound system will help us to provide new and exciting experiences for our entire Duquesne community.

Spiritan Mission Experiences:

Each year, Spiritan Campus Ministry offers mission trips to the following locations: Mullens, WV; Houston, TX; Arlington/Baltimore; Detroit/Dayton and the Dominican Republic. These trips provide a hands-on learning experience for students where the education goes beyond the classroom. They learn the importance of meeting people where they are and working with other communities to create a better world. Your donations offer this opportunity for all students, regardless of their financial situations.

March for Life:

Each year, your generous donations provide the campus community with a bus to attend the March for Life in Washington D.C. The purchase of the bus allows our community to peacefully stand up for the right to life for all people, born and unborn. This year, despite the pandemic, we were able to attend the March for Life in person in Washington, D.C. once again!
