The Mercy Center and Campus Ministry

Saint Joseph's offers many challenging, fun, and meaningful opportunities for students to integrate religious and moral principles into their studies and non-academic activities. Campus Ministry invites you to explore and fuse faith with daily life by taking advantage of all the Mercy Center has to offer.

The Mercy Center

The Mercy Center is a gathering place for prayer, learning, and service, providing inter-departmental connections to create co-curricular models of the intellectual, spiritual, and socially responsible life that the College nurtures. The Center is a place of intellectual and spiritual inquiry and nourishment. It links faculty and students with community partners in mutually supportive relationships that enhance the distinctive Mercy character of a Saint Joseph’s education. The Mercy Center is located on the first floor of the Heffernan Center, adjacent to the Healy Chapel. You are always welcome to visit!

Saint Joseph's College was established by the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas and founded on the Mercy principles of faith, excellence, integrity, community, respect, compassion, and justice.
