As part of a Catholic, Jesuit institution, the foundation and existence of the Center is directly related to the belief that service, faith and justice are inextricably connected. At Loyola, we expect to work with volunteers whose motivation to engage in service stems from her/his faith and/or spirituality. Opportunities for spiritual reflections and prayer are always available and part of the structure of most of our programs.
Several members of the CCSJ staff partner with members of the Campus Ministry Office and with students affiliated with both offices to form a Service and Spirituality Committee whose main goal is to connect service and justice to faith and spirituality. They are always ready and willing to engage in conversation with volunteers about how their spirituality is affected by their service experiences. We welcome all members of the university community who sincerely desire to give, receive and learn through service and explore their journeys in faith.Listed below are some of our service-faith connection programs:
