Fr. Robert Lampitt

Head Chaplain

Fr. Lampitt oversees the breadth of the pastoral and sacramental offerings available to the thousands of Catholic Illini on campus. He directs the pastoral team in its ministry to accompany students in their faith journey, no matter their starting point, as part of the SJCNC mission to equip students for a lifelong relationship with Christ and His Church. As a Catholic Illini alumnus and former SJCNC ministry leader in Koinonia and the sacristan team, St. John's has always held a special place in Fr. Robert Lampitt's heart. He was here from 1997-2002 as a student and returned in June 2017 as Head Chaplain leading SJCNC and thousands of Catholic Illini.


Ask me about:

  1. Why you belong at SJCNC, no matter where you are in your faith journey,
  2. Discipleship formation and ways to live your faith through service to others,
  3. My 5 years studying in Rome.

The best part of my job: Interacting personally with students; I love answering questions and visiting one on one.

When I'm not at work, you'll find me watching the St. Louis Cardinal baseball team, or at Barnes & Noble
