Integration of Faith and Justice

Xavier's first major is the core. Xavier's mission is an integration of Faith and Justice.  My web-page develops how I try to integrate faith and justice. This page is to invite you to contribute your own integration and how that might affect core requirements.  I welcome the first contribution. e-mail me at urmston@xavier.edu

Ephesians 2.19-22 reads:

"Sisters and brothers: you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens and the holy ones and members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the Apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus Himself as the capstone. Through him the whole structure is held together and grows into a temple sacred in the Lord: in him you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit."

My five pillars of the Vision of Hope are simply ways of building on the Apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus Himself as the capstone.
