Bishop Peter Joseph Jugis announced that the Diocese of Charlotte will celebrate 2020 as the “Year of St. Joseph” to commemorate the 150th anniversary of St. Joseph being solemnly declared Patron of the Catholic Church by Pope Pius IX in his decree Quemadmodum Deus. Throughout the year we want to honor St. Joseph as the guardian and protector of the Church and her faithful with heartfelt prayer and devotion, encouraging all to take his virtuous life as our model for fulfilling our personal vocation to holiness.

We serve the Catholic students, faculty, and staff, of the institutions of higher education in western North Carolina.

Students are invited to find their school using the menu at left. We encourage all Catholic students attending university or college in the Diocese of Charlotte to get to know their respective campus ministries and pray about how they can be involved in spreading the light of Christ on their campuses.

Don’t see a campus ministry active at your school? Maybe YOU are the one to get it started! Email Mary Wright, the Diocesan Director of Campus and Young Adult Ministry for more information.
