Chapel of the Immaculate Conception
Campus Ministry

Seton Hall is a Catholic University committed to providing a Christian education and developing community. Campus Ministry's mission is to be a pastoral presence of the Catholic Church on campus. As such, we seek to:

  • evangelize and empower all, by the prompting of the Spirit, to become dedicated members of God's family;
  • bring to higher education the Church's general mission, namely, to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ;
  • create an environment which allows for the spiritual, moral, liturgical and sacramental development, as well as intellectual, social, and physical growth;
  • guide the maturing Christian conscience, educate for peace and justice, and develop future Christian leaders
