St. Mary University Parish aspires to foster an inclusive, welcoming, hospitable, and close-knit university community at Central Michigan wherein we cultivate the Catholic faith of students, faculty, and staff and connect that faith to reason and service.

Accordingly, we join with all in the university to build and strengthen our community and, in turn, we provide our university community with opportunities for:

  • preparation to enter the Catholic Church (RCIA)
  • pastoral conversation and care,
  • prayer and worship,
  • spiritual growth.

Finally, we offer innumerable resources available at and beyond CMU.
