What we do

Campus Ministry at Saint Martin’s University accompanies and supports you as you explore and grow spiritually through experiences that are rooted in our core values of faith, reason, service and community. Together with our monastic community, student affairs and academic partners, community-based volunteer and immersion service opportunities, we are dedicated to hospitality for all without exception, as we promote and share the many gifts flowing from our Benedictine charism and Catholic faith.

Service Immersion experiences with Saint Martin's

Saint Martin's students explore new horizons through relationships with others in vulnerable communities through service immersions. This year students enrolled in the course ED495: Social Justin in Action to learn about service in preparation for spring break immersions in Los Angeles at Homeboy Industries/Dolores Mission and Tacoma at L'Arche Tahoma Hope. They explored complex issues, built strong relationships, and were forever impacted on their ongoing journey of becoming. Contact us to learn more.
