Faith Programs and Service Opportunities
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.” Consider these service opportunities

Today, in the Eucharistic liturgy of the first Sunday of Lent, we have two Scripture stories that are all too familiar to us. First, the book of Genesis offers us the classic story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden where they become aware of the fruit bearing tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Second, we have the epic drama of Jesus’ temptations in the Gospel of Matthew. But I suggest it is the middle reading, perhaps the less poetic reading from Paul’s letter to the Romans, that provides the clue, the fulcrum, the glue that holds the other two together. » Read more
The Church invites us to renew our friendship with the Triune God, the Holy Community of Persons whose best name is Love. As Pope Francis notes in his Apostolic Exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium: “The joy of the gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus.
