Trinity, a comprehensive university in the nation’s capital, seeks a Director of Campus Ministry to plan and implement programs for the spiritual development of this religiously diverse campus, including Catholic liturgies and services, ecumenical and interfaith prayer and worship, and community service programs that manifest Trinity’s commitment to social justice. Founded in 1897 by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, a congregation of religious women with a distinctive commitment to action for social justice, Trinity continues its historic emphasis on women’s education and leadership while also providing a broad range of educational opportunities for women and men of all ages at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Reporting to the Dean of Student Services, the Director of Campus Ministry must be Catholic, but Trinity is also interested in building a team that may include ministers of other faiths on a consulting basis. The director must have the experience, skills and talents that Trinity considers essential for success in this role: the ability to organize and implement a range of religious programs, for students throughout the campus; the ability to lead programs of prayer and worship, retreats, community service seminars, and related educational and administrative tasks; knowledge of Catholic liturgical rules and expectations, and ability to recruit priests to celebrate weekly liturgies on campus; ability to foster a broad range of community connections for service learning opportunities, including cooperation with faculty on service-learning opportunities that might also be linked to courses and curricula.
The Director of Campus Ministry also has primary responsibility for Notre Dame Chapel, the center of worship on campus, and for coordinating duties of the sacristan as well as special events that use the Chapel, including weddings.
A master’s degree in ministry or a related field is essential, along with at least eight years of progressively responsible experience in ministry, preferably on a college campus or in a comparable setting.
