Bro. Tom Pieper, S.M.

Campus Minister for Stuart Hall


Campus Ministry: Residence Life Ministry

Personal History

Hi! I'm Bro. Tom and I am a Marianist Brother. In my ministry at the University of Dayton, I work with Andrew Larochelle, a Graduate Student. Together we serve to the needs of the students in Stuart Complex, a first year Residence Hall. Our ministry consists of building a strong faith community in the hall so that everyone finds a home, can share their gifts and talents, and become mature men and women of faith. Through this ministry I have come to know what a great privilege I have been given of journeying and walking with many young persons as they search to live a stronger Christian life. I am just as excited for my ministry this year as I was many years ago when I first arrived on campus.

During the summer months I moderate the University of Dayton's Summer Appalachia Program (UDSAP). It is a nine week program in Kentucky, involving fourteen UD students. We live a very simple community life, create a day camp program for little children, a program for the teens in the evenings, befriend elderly in a nursing home and visit with the families of the kids and teens.

Got a question? Interested in being part of our ministry? Give me a call. I would love to hear from you!
