Campus Minister: Marcus Ayers
The campus minister is here as a support staff for students. He is at the CCM House during the week and is happy to help you and is a great resource for faith questions. Feel free to stop by and just chat.
Marcus grew up Catholic in Salem, Oregon. He came to CWU in 2005 to receive degrees in history and geography. During this time he got confirmed through CCM in 2010. After graduation Marcus got married and moved to Olympia to be with his wife, Emily. After three years away he was drawn back to campus ministry at CWU in 2015. Returning to CCM has been a blessing for Marcus and his family. They look forward to serving the students of Central and pushing them to be active Catholics in our community.
CCM is a student led community. This means a large number of our events are planned and led by students. Most of this is done by our peer ministry team. Peer ministers are full-time students at CWU who have a passion for this community and thus choose to dedicate a year of service to CCM.
They can often be found hanging out at the CCM House and participating in CCM events.
Our social justice minister focuses on community and campus outreach by encourages students to be active participants in community service and prolife activities.
Our music minister coordinates music at mass, retreats, and praise and worship through song selection and leading the choir.
Our social event minister facilitates community building by planning, executing and participating in a variety of weekly social events.
Our liturgical minister coordinates student volunteers as altar servers, lectors, and Eucharistic ministers at weekly student led mass. This role also includes preparations for Sunday mass, occasional daily mass and adoration.
