Connecting with Austin faith organizations
Recognizing the need for students to connect with a local faith community during their time at St. Edward’s University, Campus Ministry works in concert with a wide variety of faith-based organizations to help students get connected in Austin. In many cases, Campus Ministry staff members have firsthand experience with many local resources. We can be a helpful source of information to find the organization or faith community that's right for you.
You can find a faith community by checking out the Places of Worship directory.
Local organizations include:
Interfaith Action of Central Texas (iACT, formerly AAIM) - iACT unites faith and cultural communities to foster respect, partnership and transformation in service of the common good. iACT sponsors numerous dialogue events throughout the year and coordinates various interfaith service projects throughout the Austin area.
