Spiritual Development and Pastoral Care

Celebrating the Sacraments

Campus ministry gathers with members of the Merrimack College community to celebrate various sacraments, described below.

Rite of Christian Initiation

A special invitation is extended to those who are interested in becoming Catholic or completing their Sacraments of Initiation into the Catholic Church (Baptism, Eucharist, Confirmation). The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process of preparation used at Merrimack College. Others on campus who desire to deepen their faith commitment as Catholics are also welcomed to the initiation sessions.

For more information or to get involved, please contact Nicholas DiSalvatore.

Please watch the video below describing the Rite of Christian Initiation experience.

Pastoral Care

College life — and life in general — can be quite stressful at times. All campus ministers are available to talk with you about anything, spiritual or otherwise. Please do not hesitate to drop in our office at any time.

Sacrament of Reconcilitation

Confessions are heard at any time by appointment with an Augustinian friar on campus.

Spiritual Direction

Spiritual direction is available for those who would like to explore more deeply their faith journey or who simply want to speak one-on-one with a campus minister.
