This chapter examines the mixed messages that university campus ministry programs send to women concerning their role in the Church. It argues that a major challenge for Jesuit schools in the twenty-first century will be nurturing and educating women for ministry. Drawing on the Manresa Project at Marquette University, it offers strategies for creating programs based on the Ignatian principles of introspection and discernment that “invite college students to think about both lay and ordained professional church ministry as a life goal”.

Keywords:   campus ministry programs, women, Jesuit schools, education, Ignatian principles, introspection, discernment
