Welcome to the Office of Mission and Ministry

 

Our office is charged with coordinating the college-wide process of maintaining, enhancing, and promoting the distinctive mission of Providence College as a Catholic and Dominican college.


The Office of Mission and Ministry oversees the work of the Office of the Chaplain/Campus Ministry, the Center for Catholic and Dominican Studies, the Chaplaincy to the National Alumni Association, serves as a resource for existing departments and programs, and helps to develop new initiatives expressive of the mission of the college.

The word mission comes from the Latin, mission, which means "to be sent," while ministry means to serve. The office therefore serves the College community by helping us to think about our many efforts in light of a broader and deeper call and mission, and by creating a culture on campus in which everyone -- students, faculty, alumni, administration, staff, trustees -- partake of and benefit from a common mission inspired by faith and enabled by grace.

The Office of Mission and Ministry is pleased to know of your interest in the Catholic and Dominican character of Providence College. We invite your to read our 2011-2016 Strategic Plan, The Conversation Continues, and we welcome your comments, questions and suggestions.
