Greetings from our Campus Minister
Welcome, Hoosier Catholics!
On behalf of the entire staff at St. Paul Catholic Center, it is a pleasure to welcome you to Bloomington. Whether you are beginning your college career, midway through your undergrad years, or on the path to a graduate degree, you will find a fulfilling environment of faith and fellowship here.
Serving IU students is a priority at St. Paul. We understand that in college you face both opportunities and obstacles to developing your faith in Jesus and His Church. We are here to walk with you; to help you to discover God's love and mercy; and to equip you to live this faith authentically.
We build this community of disciples through our celebration of the Sacraments, evangelization, faith sharing, social events, retreats, and service. Whether it be at Mass on Sunday, in small groups, on retreat, or over a plate of pasta at our weekly Sunday Suppers, every Hoosier Catholic has a place and everyone is called to become a disciple of Jesus Christ.
Over the past three years, we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of students we engage regularly. It is our sincerest hope to involve even more students in the years to come.
It is the highest privilege to be your priest. If ever I can be of help, please give me a call or email.
I hope to see you soon at St. Paul’s.
Fr. Patrick Hyde, OP
Associate Pastor, Campus Minister
