“I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do.” (Jn 13:15)
CSA SOCIAL SERVICE MINISTRY: In response to the Gospel message members of the Catholic Student Association make time to serve the needs of others, to offer comfort, friendship, and assistance. They also seek to study the challenge which Catholic social teachings bring to their actions. The students demonstrate good stewardship by investing time, treasurer and talent in specific areas of need.
In the words of Pope Francis, “”True power is service.”
CSA plans many service events each semester. We encourage you all to take advantage of these opportunities to put your faith into action.
Outreach to the community can be just a one -time event or a full-time commitment, ranging anywhere from a week to a few years. CSA works with the Catholic Volunteer Network, which is a membership organization of over 180 different full-time volunteer programs both in the US and abroad. CVN is open to people of all faiths, backgrounds, ages, and educations. There are placements for people with a wide variety of interests and skills. Keep an eye on the bulletin for future service events!
