Campus Ministry provides opportunities for students to train for, participate in, and reflect upon meaningful service to the community. These service experiences include aiding the very young and the elderly, the unemployed and economically disadvantaged, the homeless and the handicapped. Students enrich their own lives while helping others in the search for justice and liberation.
