Our Catholic Identity The Society of Jesus, or “Jesuits,” is a religious order within the Roman Catholic Church. As a Jesuit university, we dedicate ourselves to academic excellence under the inspiration of the Catholic faith. Our faculty, staff and students recognize and affirm the importance of academic freedom in the pursuit of truth; and consistent with our Christian vision of the dignity of each human person, we welcome and respect students, faculty and staff from all faith traditions and beliefs. Does Regis offer areas of study or course work in the Catholic faith? We offer a minor in Catholic Studies, which takes an interdisciplinary approach and offers an opportunity to deepen understanding of the Catholic Christian tradition and its relationships historically and in present day with intellectual thought, society, politics, morality, spirituality, economics, science, media, literature, the arts and other dimensions of culture. Learn more about the program here. What services/liturgies are available to Catholic students? University Ministry offers opportunities for Catholics and non-Catholics alike to participate in and practice their faith. We welcome all members of the Regis community, as well as those from our local community, to join us for worship and spiritual enrichment. For the most up-to-date schedule information, please call University Ministry at 303.458.4153.

What if I’m not Catholic? Regis University’s student body is a diverse group coming from all faith and belief backgrounds. We are an inclusive community and University Ministry offers a variety of events and programs with this in mind. Did you know that that there is a space on campus specifically designed for students of any faith to gather and pray? It is called the Newland Prayer Room, and it is inside the St. John Francis Regis Chapel.
