Community ministry at Marian University inspires students to put their faith into action through numeruos service opportunities on campus and within the Indianapolis community.
Every Friday afternoon, students take active reflective roles (STARR) by diving into various experiences with food pantries, homeless shelters, mentally disabled adults, and inner-city after school programs. There are also Saturday service opportunities and new students are invited to join in a day of service before classes even begin, so that they can have a basis for reflection on the Franciscan values and Catholic Social Teaching.
One of the most powerful opportunities offered to Marian University students is Alternative Spring Break. The college offers trips to places such as Appalachia, Kentucky, New Mexico, and New York. This carefully orchestrated week of immersion, service, and reflection encourages students to become active and concerned citizens.
Come explore the opportunities in Community Ministry. Your energy, voice, and vision are essential to work for a more just and humane world. Stop by Clare Hall, room 110 and let the change begin!
