3 Questions
Campus outreach
Eunice J. Park

Eunice J. Park is campus minister to California State University East Bay. The Catholic ministry at the 14,500-student campus is an outreach ministry of All Saints Catholic Church in Hayward. About 25 students attend a weekly Mass on campus; on Ash Wednesday, their numbers swelled to almost 200. Activities include: Bible study, social justice series, faith sharing/discussion groups, service projects, praise and worship nights, study groups, social events. Park and two students have been invited by the University of Notre Dame to participate in the "¡Adelante! Engaging Latinos in Campus Ministry" conference. Campus ministries from 42 colleges and universities will be represented. The conference is covering the costs for one campus minister and one student from each campus. Park can bring a second student, and seeks a sponsor to cover transportation and conference costs of $850. She can be reached at CSUEB.CatholicMinistry@gmail.com.

How are Latino students — about a quarter of the student body, according to CSUEB — already participating in campus ministry, and in what numbers?

Although a quarter of the overall student body, they are between 50 percent and 75 percent of the students that participate in our ministry.

How do you hope the Adelante conference will help build the campus ministry at CSUEB?

Because such a large number of the Latino students are Catholic, I'm hoping to build up a contingency of leaders within this ministry who are Latino, and that this conference will help with ideas and resources to do just that. That should help with peer ministry and evangelization.

How are you currently reaching out to students?

Tabling on campus, flyers/posters/other marketing materials, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, e-mail list. Other resources: Facebook Student Group Page: CSUEB Catholic Students; Facebook Public Page: CSUEB Catholic Club; Twitter: @CSUEBCatholics; Instagram: @csuebcatholicclub.
