Broaden, enhance and enrich your faith during your time at Duquesne by getting involved with community engagement through Spiritan Campus Ministry. Rooted in Catholic social teaching and inspired by our Spiritan charism, our vision for community engagement is to minister to the marginalized in both our local and the greater global community, working toward social justice in all corners of the world.
Spiritan Campus Ministry is encouraged by our Spiritan tradition of ministry of the marginalized and liberation from the chains that bind. We promote the Spiritan idea of Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) in our engagement with the local and global community.
Here are some of the opportunities that our students and staff participate in:
- Our mission work stretchs from downtown Pittsburgh across to other countries. Students work to remedy the hardships, poverty and social injustice that people in other cultures experience. Read the stories of those who have been there.
- An environmentally conscious organization that helps to educate the DU community on sustainability on-campus and works to keep our local neighborhoods clean and green.
- This society brings hope and compassion to those with all types of need and works with the homeless of downtown Pittsburgh.
- Student committee working together to spread Fair Trade Awareness on Duquesne University's campus.
- A philosophy formulated by Cardinal Joseph Bernardin and has found its way into many outreach opportunities, primarily with Genesis House and a collaboration with the outreach efforts of the Knights of Columbus.
- Encouraged by our Spiritan tradition that is dedicated to the ministry of the marginalized and liberation from the chains that bind, Spiritan Campus Ministry promotes the Spiritan idea of Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) in our engagement with the local and global community. Rooted firmly in Catholic social teaching and inspired by our Spiritan charism, our vision for community engagement is not to be seen as separate from our liturgical life.
- Sponsored by Spiritan Campus Ministry, Spring Clean-Up helps to strengthen Duquesne's longstanding relationship with the greater Pittsburgh community. The event is aimed at raising the consciousness of the participants to the community in which they live, while at the same time showing the greater Pittsburgh community that we care about them.
