school of theology and ministry
Service is essential to following the teachings of Jesus Christ. In addition to growing in their faith and understanding, STM students are leaders in the Church and society through the sharing of their faith, the promotion of justice, and by serving the hearts and minds of those in need.
On October 24, 2015, the STM community will participate in a Day of Service, including volunteering with a variety of organizations in the Boston area throughout the day, celebrating Mass together in the evening, and sharing a simple supper at the Faber Jesuit Community. All members of the STM community are encouraged to register by October 13! Click here to see service opportunities and to register for the site of your choice.
