Faith & Ministry at Xavier
The student body at Xavier is representative of a diverse range of faith traditions and backgrounds. Part of our mission at the Dorothy Day Center for Faith & Justice (CFJ) is to help students deepen their spiritual lives, as well as to engage with those of diverse faith and cultural perspectives around them. This deep engagement moves us beyond diversity into pluralism.
We come together as a university around the gifts of our Ignatian heritage, which are reflection, discernment, solidarity & kinship, service rooted in justice & love, and mission. We want to help all students become familiar with these gifts during their time at Xavier. The doors of the CFJ are open to all.
