In the tradition of Jesuit education’s goal of enabling students to learn and grow into becoming more deeply men and women for and with others, Campus Ministry offers a variety of local service opportunities where students can use their time, talents and personal gifts in service to people in need, including children, families, and homeless men and women. These opportunities include bi-annual campus wide service days, as well as opportunities to participate individually in service or join student clubs and organizations in outreach on a weekly and/or monthly basis.
