Service Opportunities

SSJ works to provide CSB/SJU students and employees with many unique service opportunities throughout the academic year. Our goal is to incorporate the concepts of spirituality and social justice through direct service work and education. Service opportunities are scattered throughout the semester.

The service opportunities we provide are diverse. Just as there is more than one way to love others, there is also more than one way to serve others. Some examples of past service opportunities include making a meal for the residents at Anna Marie's Alliance, making rosaries and painting pots with the Sisters at Saint Scholastica Convent, volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, and Christmas Caroling with the Sisters.

Perfect for those who cannot commit to a recurring, semester-long program like J-Walking, our service opportunities aim to provide all students and employees with different and fun means of serving the greater community, learn about social justice issues, and follow in the footsteps of Christ.

After each visit, leaders facilitate a group reflection to debrief the experience.  As a group, we reflect so that we maintain intentionality with our actions.  Our reflections help Jesus Christ and social justice to remain at the root of all of our service opportunity programming.
