University Ministry

Drop Shadow

Local Congregations

People of all religious traditions as well as those still searching for their religious identity are invited to take part in each one of the liturgies facilitated by University Ministry. While we strive to ensure that all people feel welcome to attend each, we also assist students with finding a nearby congregation or place of worship that can foster their spiritual growth.

This partial directory is intended to serve as a resource to members of the USD community who are searching for a place of worship or prayer in the local community. It is not an exhaustive listing of churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples in San Diego. Moreover, the inclusion of these congregations does not constitute an endorsement of any particular church, synagogue, mosque or faith tradition. The directory is, rather, a sampling of area churches from a wide range of Christian denominations as well as non-Christian faiths.

These listings are complied by the University Ministry Center from information provided by individual churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples on their websites. If you need a ride, please contact our office to obtain a list of transportation options. Transportation can also often be arranged by directly calling the place of worship.

Finally, please know that you are always most welcome to worship at any of the Catholic Masses held on campus, either in Founders Chapel or in The Immaculata.
