The Claretians are committed to a Christ-centered ministry in higher education. We accompany the next generation of community and faith leaders through our use of social media and our campus ministry programs in Missouri and California. Our campus ministers invite students to become more active in their faith and in the Church, mainly through social service and volunteer programs.
Through these campus ministry sites, undergraduate and graduate students have access to counseling, daily Masses, reflection and discussion groups, annual retreats, social events, and numerous opportunities to be involved in community service projects.
O’Reilly Catholic Student Center
The center serves Missouri State University, Drury University, and Ozarks Technical Community College. Initiated in 1981, the Catholic Campus Ministry’s mission is to offer a Christ-centered community dedicated to the growth and development of each student for the good of the Church and society. The Chapel of the Martyrs of Barbastro serves as a magnificent worship space for the community.
Saint Paul Catholic Newman Center
The Claretians began serving at the Saint Paul Newman Center in 2017, providing pastoral support for the academic community. Numbering over 25,000 students, the center provides outreach to those associated with Fresno State University and Fresno City colleges.
