Peer Ministry

"Philip found Nathanael and said to him, 'We have found him about whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus son of Joseph from Nazareth.' Nathanael said to him, 'Can anything good come out of Nazareth?' Philip said to him, 'Come and see.'"

John 1:45-47

 As the intersection between faith and college life, Peer Ministry is a space where students draw together in small-group faith communities. Peer Ministry invites and engages Providence College students together in transformative experiences of prayer, reflection, and authentic Christian community. Peer Ministry small groups further share in the Catholic and Dominican mission of Providence College and witness to the Truth of a relational God manifested in word and action on campus. This peer-to-peer relational ministry is grounded in the formation of small-group faith communities which present students with:

  • Regular opportunities to form and deepen a dynamic relationship with God and other students,
  • A space to share questions, conversations, experiences, and resources, bridging campus life at Providence College with the life of faith in the Catholic Church,
  • Tools to embrace and embody a Catholic identity as individuals and communities created in the image and likeness of God, called to holiness within the Providence College community and the world.

    Started during 2014-15 academic year with a gift from Douglas and Joan Kingsley, parents of Doug Kingsley '16, Peer Ministry has grown to offer students these opportunities of faith both as participants and leaders. Student led groups meet bi-weekly to discuss different topics pertaining to their lives on campus and their lives of faith. Each group is led by two student leaders, Peer Ministers, who also participate in bi-weekly formation to aid in their development as student ministers.

    Small groups are comprised of students within the same graduating class. In addition to the class based groups, Peer Ministry has one Residential Peer Ministry group as a part of the Gentlemen of St. Joseph's Hall Initiative. This group is comprised of men who all live in St. Joseph Hall and is led by two Residential Peer Ministers who also live in St. Joseph Hall.

    Students interested in joining Peer Ministry are welcome to join at any point during the academic year by contacting Molly White (mwhite18@providence.edu
