Justice and Service opportunities provide students the chance to open their eyes and hearts to the poor, the marginalized and suffering in our world. Reflection on the experience is a major component of every activity. It is how students learn to be agents of change in our world through acting as a community.
International Service/Immersion Trips
During the spring semester, students travel out of the country to serve others. These trips are a time of service, immersion, and reflection on the lives of the people and cultures of Central America. Included with this program is a retreat experience, to allow us to reflect deeper on the five pillars of the program-learning, faith, justice, service, and community. Informational meetings will take place in the fall and you must attend a meeting to apply.
Saturdays in Service
Join us for service days throughout the year. Habitat for Humanity builds and volunteering at a food bank are two of our favorite service locations.
Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice
An opportunity for students, faculty and staff to join in solidarity with other Jesuit colleges, universities and high schools in Washington, D.C. on November12-14 to hear speakers, network with others and to pray, act and reflect on the Jesuit commitment to social justice.
Justice and Service Week
Step out of your comfort zone and do something for others. Many opportunities to be engaged and give to others will take place during this week.
Jesuit Experience Trip
This program is specifically focused on experiencing the Jesuit ministry to the marginalized in the United States. Students will travel for a week to the site of a Jesuit ministry with the purpose of learning about the work being done and how they can respond to the needs in their own communities. In 2016 we traveled to Pine Ridge Indian reservation where we served at Our Lady of Sorrows Jesuit parish and immersed ourselves into the Lakota Indian culture.
