About Campus Ministry: Chapel Hilbert Campus Ministry offers students a variety of opportunities for building relationships, faith development and enrichment, pastoral and spiritual counseling, on-and-off campus programs, discussions, community outreach, faith sharing, and worship. Cultural and religious diversity are valued and celebrated with interfaith and ecumenical events and services.

  • Form the faith community
