Sacramental Preparation


We aspire to share the beauty of Catholicism with non-Catholics and Catholics alike. Whether you have not been baptized, have not yet received certain sacraments and desire to, or are a Catholic yearning to know more, classes are open for you to take the next step to the Truth found in Christ and His Church! If you are interested contact Pamela Zarybnicky at

Marriage Prep

Engaged couples may receive all or part of the necessary preparations for marriage through Benedictine College Ministry.  Chaplains are available to offer instruction and administer the FOCCUS test, and Drs. Jim and Jennifer Madden offer a marriage prep course every year.  For more information, contact Jen Madden.

Women and engaged couples are invited to take Natural Family Planning courses through Benedictine College Ministry.  NFP promotes women’s health and the Church’s teaching on openness to new life.  For more information, contact Jen Madden.


Students interested in discerning a call to religious life have the opportunity to meet with dozens of religious orders and diocesan vocation directors at Ministry’s annual Vocation Fair, held on campus every spring.

Priests, brothers, and sisters from various orders also visit Benedictine College throughout the year to give talks, meet with students, offer spiritual direction, and host receptions so that our students can learn more about their communities.  For more information, contact Heather Hineline.
