Faith for today. Hope for the future.


For 95 years, there has been Catholic ministry present on the campus of the College of William & Mary. While the name and format of that ministry has changed over the years to best meet the needs of the students we serve, two things have remained constant:


The firm conviction that what happens on the campus of the College of William & Mary indeed impacts the world; and

The belief that the Church can and must be an active voice in forming strong, compassionate, and moral leaders for our world.

That, in a nutshell, is why Catholic Campus Ministry at the College of William & Mary exists. And it is why, in the ever-changing cultural landscape of our world today, the need is greater than ever. CCM is on the frontlines, at the intersection of faith and academia, working to invite students into relationship with Christ and the Church, form disciples of Christ, end equip leaders for the Church and world of tomorrow.

Join us April 13, 2019 to celebrate that mission.


We will gather at Kaplan Parish Hall at St. Bede Catholic Church for an evening of fellowship with an elegant catered meal, a compelling keynote, an exciting live auction, and dancing to live big-band music! Whether you are an alumnus of William & Mary who has been impacted by the ministry of CCM, a parent of a past or current student, a parishioner of St. Bede, or just someone who loves a good party, the 13th Annual CCM Benefit Gala is the perfect opportunity to celebrate and to invest in the mission of Catholic Campus Ministry.
