The mission of the Catholic Campus Ministry program at Penn State Behrend is to bring the Catholic faith to students on Penn State Behrend's campus through the Mass, student activities, and outreach.

Catholic Campus Ministry (CCM) is also devoted to developing a supportive and welcoming community for those at Behrend that are Catholic or interested in learning more about the Catholic faith. Students, faculty, and staff members are welcome to attend any of our programs, which always have a fun or social aspect while encouraging faith exploration and spiritual growth.

In addition to programming and events, the CCM staff members are here to provide resources and assistance to those on campus. The CCM office is located in the Smith Chapel, next to the Junker Center on Station Road, on the second floor. Office hours are posted on the door, but anyone is welcome to make appointments to speak with the Chaplain, CCM Coordinator or CCM Assistant

 (check out the Contact Us page of this site). Confessions are available before and after Masses, or by appointment as needed.
