Tony Laux

Director of Campus Ministry


Contact Tony at 


As campus minister, Tony serves as a spiritual counselor for students, as a representative of the Diocese of Richmond, and also directs the student leadership team. He also makes sure things don't blow up :) He enjoys volleyball, singing, hiking, and board games, and is humbled to help bring others to know Christ and fall in love with Him anew each day. He is married to RU alumna Elizabeth, who is way out of his league, and they have a two-year-old child, Theo Benedict, and twin babies Gregory and Claire.

Nicknamed the "Priest-boy" for his youthful vitality and abilities on the soccer field, Fr. Charles is our wonderful chaplain, originally from Uganda. Funny and relatable, he provides for our sacramental needs and challenges us to grow. He formerly served as pastor of a cluster of parishes and worked with the campus ministry at UVA-Wise.

"Welcome to all students. You have many challenges, but with Christ at your center you will always find true joy."
