Understanding concepts such as social responsibility, personal accountability, and
reverence for all creation is central to the Franciscan vision of what it means to be an
educated person. The mission of the Mission and Ministry unit is to provide for the wholistic development
of the University community through opportunities for continued understanding
and deeper appreciation of our Catholic, Franciscan mission values.
Meet our staff members, become familiar with
the activities offered through the Neumann Institute for Franciscan
Studies, the Institute for Sport, Spirituality and Character Development,
and through Campus Ministry. Join us for our daily and or weekend liturgy
celebration. Also, enjoy the opportunities for retreats, evenings of
reflection, and outreach programs to the underserved. As a community, we enthusiastically share our talents, gifts and knowledge in the service of others.
We don't just say it, we live it.
