Spirituality and Service
As graduates of a Jesuit, Catholic University we share a special commitment not to live for ourselves alone. We recognize that we are called to share our time, talent, and resources with the world around us.
It is a lifetime commitment – a commitment worthy of St. Ignatius’ call to go “transform the world.” The need is all around us. Here are just a few opportunities for service to consider:
