Grow in Faith by processing and synthesizing your experience. Become an advocate for justice as you learn about the issues of our day. Find Jesus in those you serve and yourself.


Discover how to Love: yourself, neighbor and God!

I do not know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only
ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.
— Albert Schweitzer
