The Catholic Campus Center at Washburn University is a Catholic campus ministry program that strives to provide a safe, comfortable, and caring community, in which students can grow spiritually, form new relationships, and deepen the understanding of their faith. By offering encouragement in worship and study, we aid in: the development of leadership skills, building of relationships with new friends, and forming of lasting memories. Through the sharing of meals and prayers, to sustain the body, mind, and spirit, we help break social barriers for a chance to create a greater fellowship among new and growing friends, while supporting others in the growth and understanding of their faith. We act as models to those around us through our commitment to community and God. For more information please contact Patti Lyon -
