The Catholic Campus Ministry @ Richmond team 


We are part of the University Chaplaincy and enjoy strong relationships with other faith groups on campus.  The student leadership team helps to shape the Catholic community and is engaged with all aspects of the parish, including music, liturgy, service, devotions and fellowship.


The Rev. Mr. Thomas M. Mullen - or Deacon Tom as he is most commonly known - is the Catholic Chaplain for the University.  Deacon Mullen works with students, staff, faculty, and community members to ensure vibrant Catholic life at Richmond through liturgy, service, devotions, education, and social outreach. He is committed to ecumenical and multifaith efforts with other campus religious traditions.

He is also a faculty advisor for Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity and faculty sponsor for the University's Quidditch team. He received the University's Distinguished Educator Award in 2021.
