Service and Outreach

"Listen and attend with the ear of your heart." The Rule of St. Benedict

St. Procopius ServingOne of the ten hallmarks of a Benedictine education is to "love Christ and neighbor."

Love is at the heart of Benedictine monastic life. The life of the monastic, like that of all Christians, is first and foremost a response to God's astonishing love for humankind—a love expressed in the free gift of his beloved Son, Jesus Christ.  Saint Benedict urges monastics to ground their lives in a whole-hearted response to that love and to share it freely with others.

Benedictine colleges and universities should be unabashed about being grounded in love. We ask all within the institution to make a real commitment to sharing Christ's love with others.

One such way to fulfill that commitment is through service. University Ministry has a wide number of service opportunities available to students.  Opportunities are available at the local, national, and international levels.
