The Mission of the Catholic Community at Hopkins is to develop and form educated, passionate, and faithful Catholic leaders, transformed and united by an abiding encounter with Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, the sacraments, and the Word of God. We seek to live and communicate the love and fullness of life in Christ and His Church through discipleship, fellowship, service to the poor, and the building of the culture of life, so that we may bring Christ to the world and the world to Christ.
The Johns Hopkins Catholic Community is an official student organization of the University! All of our Sunday Masses are celebrated at Saints Philip and James Catholic Church and University Parish.
Catholic ministries to students are supported by two full time priest-chaplains, Dominican friar, who are assisted by the entire parish staff. Students serve as the leadership board which plans and holds multiple weekly spiritual, social, and charitable events. Many students volunteer to assist at Mass as altar servers, Eucharistic ministers, lectors, musicians, choir members, and more.
