Campus Ministry held their annual silent auction to benefit student service immersion trips to West Virginia, Ecuador, New York, and New Mexico on Nov. 29 in the Grace Hall Atrium. Students and faculty were able to bid on great prizes that started their Christmas shopping.

As stated on, Campus Ministry located on the third floor of Founder’s Hall, is an inviting atmosphere where the Cabrini College community can experience a sense of belonging and feel comfortably connected to themselves, their peers and their faith.

Campus Ministry provides opportunities for students to meet other students with similar interests, while deepening their spirituality, encountering God in the everyday world, developing a conscience rooted in Gospel values and responding to issues of faith and justice.

“It’s really cool. It was an eye-opening experience and I see the value of this opportunity for students to experience rural poverty,” Cathy Matta, junior math major and peer minister for Campus Ministry, said about her experiences going to West Virginia and Ecuador.

“Trips are student fundraised and this opportunity is a great learning experience for students to learn about the world, themselves and to meet a lot of friends,” Tim Rooney, senior English major, said. Rooney is also a peer minister and traveled to Ecuador last winter.

Stephanie Salinis, who just became the Campus Minister in the Campus Ministry office this past August, had the opportunity to be involved in many service trips such as Maryland, Montana, Mississippi, New Orleans, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Guyana and South America.

“I think it’s a great learning experience that allows you to broaden your world view,” Salinis said.

In a statement, Campus Ministry said that they are “extremely happy and grateful to everyone who came out and supported our efforts.”
