Campus Ministry

The Office of Campus Ministry oversees all Catholic campus ministry to higher education (students, administration, faculty and staff) at the public and private residential colleges and universities in the Diocese of Portland.

The ministry has various forms: a "center" or "club" or "council" of students, with a campus minister and/or priest chaplain. On some campuses, a shift is underway, whereby campus ministry is being entrusted to a local parish and pastor (“parish-based” ministry).

The Diocesan Coordinator for Campus Ministry is Rev. Kyle Doustou, pastor of Parish of the Resurrection of the Lord and chaplain for the University of Maine, Orono. He maintains an office at Our Lady of Wisdom Church/ Newman Center, 83 College Avenue, Orono.
