SMU’s Catholic Campus Ministry
Celebrates 75th Anniversary

Bishop Kevin J. Farrell

DALLAS - Catholic Bishop Kevin Farrell celebrated a special anniversary Mass at SMU on Thursday, commemorating 75 years of the Catholic Campus Ministry at the University. The Mass featured classical music, “Missa SMU,” written by SMU Meadows School of the Arts student Tim Roy, a junior from Nederland, Texas.

Founded at SMU in 1932, the Catholic Campus Ministry provides support and guidance for the 2,500 Catholics on campus, nearly ¼ of the undergraduate student population. The Catholic Campus Ministry offers numerous ways for the students to get involved with their faith on campus, including small groups, Sunday Supper at the Neuhoff Catholic Student Community Center and tutoring in the poverty stricken Vickery Meadow community.
