The Office

The Office of Campus Ministry is located in the basement of Shalloe Hall (between Hogan and the Commons). You can easily identify us by the Campus Ministry Lounge across the hall (it’s a big open space full of couches, you can’t miss it).

All students are welcome in the Office of Campus Ministry! However, the Lounge is a junior and senior privilege. For the time being, the Lounge is closed.

Mr. Halloran and Mr. Penik’s desks are located in the CM Lounge. Mr. Dawybida’s desk is immediately to your left when you enter the office; Mrs. Randall’s office is immediately to your right. Mr. Dougherty’s is all the way in the back. Feel free to drop by any of our offices if you have a question! We’re here for you.
