In addition to being a diocesan ministry, Catholic Campus Ministry is also a recognized student organization at Western Carolina University. As such, student leaders are a vital part of our ministry.
Our peer ministry team constitutes the student leadership that works with our campus minister to plan many of the events we offer throughout the year. Students who have been active participants in campus ministry for at least one semester, and who are faithful examples of students living the Catholic faith on a college campus are eligible for peer ministry service.
Our peer ministers serve on one or more of the following teams.
- Wednesday Night Team (plan and facilitate our Wednesday night programs)
- Small Group Leaders (plan and facilitate our small group Bible studies)
- Retreat Team (plan and facilitate our fall and spring retreats)
In addition, all peer ministers are responsible for fostering a welcoming environment for all students who participate in Catholic Campus Ministry.
