I am a Graduate Student

Information for Graduate Students

Welcome to the Sheil Catholic Center! 

Graduate life is a very different than undergraduate life — and, as a result, graduate students expect different things from campus ministry. That’s why the Sheil Catholic Center has unique opportunities available for the graduate students on both Northwestern University’s Evanston and Chicago Campuses. 

While we are based on the Evanston Campus, we recently opened a second Catholic Campus Ministry on the Chicago Campus. Our Chicago Campus Ministry is a new but growing community with weekly Mass and spiritual direction provided by Clarissa Aljentera, who is on campus full-time.

At both locations, Sheil offers a warm, welcoming environment for prayer and faith. Our dynamic community of undergraduates, graduate students and associates connects regularly for worship, spiritual exploration and community activities. 

We also have many opportunities for our graduate students to engage with their faith in the way that’s most meaningful to them:
