All events are indefinitely postponed due to COVID-19

elcome to Detroit Mercy University Ministry! We provide a space for all students to explore and experience spirituality, justice, leadership, service and immersion opportunities.

During these interesting times of the coronavirus pandemic, we still want to find ways to be a pastoral support to our community. One way we hope to connect is through Instagram or Facebook with our new one-minute video series "Afternoon Team with Ministry."

Currently our staff is telecommuting but we are only an email, phone call or text away!


Please call us at 313-993-1560!

As a Catholic, Jesuit and Mercy university we want to celebrate with all our students and employees from diverse cultures and religions as each and every person belongs here. Click here to access a multi-faith calendar of religious holy days and observances.

Our Mission

Inspired by God's unconditional love, University Ministry accompanies the Detroit Mercy community as we learn to know, love, and serve God and one another.
