Residence Ministry

Welcome Home!

As you now call the Residence Halls home, isn't it great to know that you have so many people who care for you, want your St. John's experience to be amazing and who are here to help you grow in relationship with Christ!

In addition to your Residence Directors and Residence Assistants, you have  Resident Ministers to provide a pastoral presence in the halls and apartments as Campus Ministers live with you in the Residence Village and the Residential apartments on Queens and Staten Island.

While Campus Ministers  are always available by appointment throughout the week, we also offer night hours on the Queens campus where our doors are always open. From 7pm to Midnight, students are invited to visit their Campus Minister to engage in conversation.

On the Staten Island campus, the Resident Minister offers various programs to the resident community to get those same conversations going.  Appointments can be made with the Resident Minister to chat in the evenings.

Talk about your day, your classes, relationships, spirituality, favorite sports team, family, friends, life. We are here to walk with you through your college years, providing a listening ear and a helping hand.

Please feel free to contact any of the Residence Ministers to find out more about who we are and how we can help make this college experience a great one.

Residence Ministry Programming

Residence Ministers offer a variety of programs throughout the semester. Working closely with Residence Assistants, we provide mission-related programs to help you connect to who we are as a Catholic, Vincentian and Metropolitan University.
