Campus Ministry

Proclaiming God’s Provident Love to the world.

Inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, Campus Ministry at the University of Providence aims to form our students as whole and integrated persons, prepared to live out their faith and respond to the needs of others with compassion.

Celebrating the richness of our identity as a Roman Catholic university, Campus Ministry fosters the active sacramental life of our campus community while inviting students to personal and spiritual growth through reflection, faith formation, fellowship, service, and retreats. Inspired by the heritage and spirituality of the Sisters of Providence we proclaim Providence as the loving presence of God, made present to the world in and through us.

Ever mindful that all persons are made in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:27) Campus Ministry programming is open to all students, regardless of faith tradition or life situation.

Providence Servant Leaders

Providence Servant Leaders is a faith-formation community rooted in forming young people for service through the heritage and charism of the Sisters of Providence. New members are admitted to the program every Fall.


Inspired by the Charism of the Sisters of Providence, we respond to God’s call to be Providence for the world through fellowship, formation, and loving service.


PSL is a community of UP students with a shared interest in personal growth and service to others. As a result of the need to have the time to grow in community, PSL is a multi-year commitment.


Open to University of Providence students of all faiths, PSL seeks to form young people in the Charism and spirituality of the Providence Community through intentional spiritual formation, leadership development, and communal experiences of service.


Students who successfully complete their initial year of “intensive formation” in PSL will be officially elevated to the rank of Providence Servant Leader, and serve the University community for the remainder of their time in the program as “peer ministers” in Campus Ministry service projects, service trips, worship, fellowship, and retreat programming.


As a continuation of the saving work of Jesus Christ, PSL seeks to develop in its members a loving concern for the poor and vulnerable and a desire to build of the Kingdom of God on earth through the promotion of a more just society.

Spiritual Direction

Throughout the school year, students have the opportunity to participate in spiritual direction with a member of the campus ministry team.

Spiritual direction is not therapy or even pastoral counseling, but rather the opening of oneself to being in sacred space with another person who will deeply listen to you as you speak to your story and ongoing spiritual journey. Instead of giving you answers or instructions, spiritual direction offers you questions that will invite you to go deeper and discover God’s presence in your life.

Young women curious about religious life can participate in spiritual direction online with a Sister of Providence. Such meetings are generally hosted on either the Zoom of Microsoft Teams platform.

Confirmation & RCIA

Campus Ministry offers a series of seminars on Catholicism throughout the year for those who are interested in the Catholic faith. Attending a seminar does not require you to become Catholic. Those interested in receiving sacraments in the Catholic Church are invited to visit the Campus Ministry office for more information.

Religious Vocations

For 90 years, the University of Providence has been a place where many Catholics have felt the call to serve God and God’s people in the vocations of priesthood or consecrated life.

If you are interested in being connected with discernment resources, or simply wish to speak with a vocations director from the Sisters of Providence or the Diocese of Great Falls-Billings, please contact your campus minister.
