The Division of Mission and Ministry

The Division of Mission and Ministry serves The University of Scranton by making visible and effective our Roman Catholic and Jesuit identity with a spirit of inclusivity of all religious traditions and other expressions of healthy spirituality. Inspired by the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the charism of St. Ignatius, we offer students, faculty and staff opportunities to become women and men for and with others.

These opportunities include ways to:

  • Explore and express your relationship with God
  • Form consciences
  • Live out faith in reflective service
  • Work for justice
  • Be in solidarity with all of Creation, especially with the poor and marginalized

The division oversees Campus Ministry, The Center for Service and Social Justice and The Jesuit Center.  Each department focuses on a different aspect and group of people.

Campus Ministry is here to journey with ALL students and offers:

  • Worship and Prayer
  • Spiritual Formation
  • Retreats

The Center for Service and Social Justice, referred to as CSSJ, gives the students an opportunity to reflect on service through the lens of faith and offers:

  • Local, Domestic, and International Service Trips
  • Service

The Jesuit Center helps employees of the University to better understand their faith and relationship with God and keeps its Catholic and Jesuit character at the center of the educational enterprise. The Center does this by:

  • Fostering faculty and staff participation in the Jesuit higher educational mission
  • Supporting faculty teaching and scholarship that advances the University’s Catholic and Jesuit character
