The Chaplain and the Doctor

Balancing faith and science to do a better job

“I knew my Catholic tradition and spirituality were very important to me and I wanted to explore that, and explore that through the school’s campus ministry,” says Clare Batty ’14.

As an SCU student, Batty worked as a campus minister, assisting with Sunday evening Mass and as a eucharistic minister.

Today she’s both a hospital chaplain and a medical student at University of New Mexico. The combination helps her more fully serve those in need, offering both spiritual and diagnostic care.

Some of her patients even call her “Minister Doctor Batty.” Support the work of campus ministry for students now and in the future: campaign.scu.edu.
