Community Engagement & Spiritual Life

Explore, celebrate, act on your faith

University of Saint Joseph Office of Community Engagement & Spiritual Life (CESL) strives to unify the campus by nurturing a Catholic and Interfaith community that is centered on our Core Values.

The Office of Community Engagement & Spiritual Life focuses on the Core Value of Catholic Identity by offering liturgical celebrations, collaborative retreats, engagement with other Catholic campus ministries, and additional programming to enhance our Core Values, the Sisters of Mercy Critical Concerns, and Catholic social teachings. We also support other faith backgrounds by providing interfaith and ecumenical prayer services, social gatherings, and collaborations that enhance learning, develop faith, and create unity. Additionally, CESL works on providing experiences with the community that supports our Mercy Core Value of Compassionate Service.
