The St. Tom’s LifeGuide program was recently honored by the Catholic Campus Ministry Association as the Exemplary Program for Forming the Faith Community. Exemplary Program Awards are presented to campus ministry programs and activities that best exemplify campus ministry in one of six areas of campus ministry, as described in “Empowered By the Spirit”.
LifeGuides are a team of college students and confirmed high school students instrumental in the planning, organizing and implementation of the activities for youth who are part of the parish community. The individuals involved in LifeGuides share their faith through religious education, service projects, retreats, and other events.

Dominican Friars of the Province of St. Albert the Great serve the vibrant Catholic community at St. Tom’s Catholic Center. The Center is among the nation’s largest parish/campus ministries programs. The 650+ resident parishioner families and nearly 10,000 Catholic students at Purdue join together to make this one of the great memories for Boilermakers who soon take this faith experience into their lives and the world around them.
The Catholic Campus Ministry Association (www.ccmanet.org) is the national organization for Catholic campus ministers dedicated to the comprehensive vision of campus ministry outlined in the 1985 U.S. Catholic Bishops’ Pastoral letter, Empowered by the Spirit: Campus Ministry Faces the Future and creating a culture of vocations on our college campuses.
