Catholic Campus Ministry provides a variety of opportunities for students to discover and deepen their faith through prayer, fellowship, retreats, and education. We journey together with the Christ the King (CTK) parish to celebrate, grow in, wrestle with, and live out our faith. CTK was originally created as the Newman Center for the students, faculty, and staff of the University of Montana. Our community has evolved into an active, vibrant, permanent parish committed to living out the Gospel values and stewarding the gifts we have been given. Our connection to the University has remained and our community is enriched by the blessings of hundreds of young people from all over the world who come to The University of Montana. The community lives out the call of Vatican II through the active participation and empowerment of its people in all areas of life. Students are invited and encouraged to share in the life of the faith community through involvement in liturgical ministries, leadership ,and youth ministry. Christ the King also has a rich tradition of involvement in the Missoula community with the Poverello Center, Habitat for Humanity, and the Jeanette Rankin Peace Center.

InterVarsity Christian Fellowship on Facebook

InterVarsity Christian Fellowship is an inner-denominational Christian group on campus committed to growing in love for God, God's Word, God's people of every ethnicity and culture, and God's purposes in the world. We want to provide a community where you can explore who Jesus is and how you can follow Him through your college years. And to answer your question, no, we are not a sports group (even though we have "Varsity" in our title--although we do love intramural sports!) All are welcome to:

  • Weekly small group Bible studies and prayer group meetings throughout the campus
  • Breakaway (our weekly large group meeting) each Thursday evening at 7 pm in Stone Hall room 304. Join us worship, teaching and prayer
  • Parties, retreats, conferences, missions trips and special events

Har Shalom is an egalitarian, Reform Jewish congregation in Missoula Montana, serving a growing and vibrant Western Montana Jewish community. We welcome Jews of all denominations and all who want to learn about us.

Jews have lived in Missoula for over a century and have gathered for holiday celebrations, religious education, services, and community service projects for more than fifty years. In the early 1980s, Missoula Jews formed the New Jewish Community, and about a decade later, the community renamed itself Har Shalom. Since the late 1980s, Har Shalom has been served by part-time rabbis, student rabbis, and lay leaders. Our current, resident spiritual leader is Student Rabbi Laurie Franklin. Har Shalom is governed by a Board of Directors led by President Bert Chessin.

Please visit our web site for the latest information about services, Torah study, adult and youth education, and community service projects. Har Shalom also offers a weekly email update by subscription to our listserv and a bi-monthly newsletter. Student Rabbi Laurie Franklin can be reached directly at 546-9368 or through info@har-shalom.org.

Emmaus Campus Ministry is sponsored by the ELCA Lutheran, Episcopal, and United Church of Christ churches and is open and welcoming of all.  We encourage diversity and welcome students from all faith perspectives with an emphasis on relationships, mutual respect, and shared wisdom.   We have more questions than answers and find more grey area than hard rules to live by.

We are a community of faith that supports each other, grows together in our spiritual life, forms great friendships, has a lot of fun and enjoys eating good food! We welcome life-long church goers, seekers new to Christianity, those who might be "spiritual but not religious", skeptics, believers, GLBT students, and anyone interested in walking together with the bigger questions about life and faith.
