AND BACKGROUND: Catholic Campus Ministry (CCM) is a student organization
on the Campus of Frostburg State University. Our Purpose is to offer
Spiritual, Educational, Social and Service opportunities to the Students,
Faculty and Staff of FSU. Funded and sponsored by the Archdiocese
of Baltimore, we are members of the Interfaith Council on Campus which
also includes United Campus Ministry (Protestant), The Baptist Student
Ministry, and Hillel (Jewish). Although we are Roman Catholic in focus,
people of any religion are welcome to join us for any of our activities.
CCM provides Mass every Sunday at 12:00 Noon and 8:00 P.M. in
Cook Chapel which is located in Frost Hall. We also offer the Sacrament
of Reconciliation, Confirmation Preparation, and RCIA for those who
are interested in Catholicism. We are part of Ecumenical Worship Services
such as Thanksgiving and Ash Wednesday. We offer students the opportunity
to be Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, and Song Leaders for our Masses
and other prayer services. We also offer a Retreat each Semester.
