Welcome to the Mission and Ministry Center at Saint Mary’s College!
Special Update: Nepal Relief
The Mission and Ministry Center is collecting donations to support relief efforts in Nepal following the devastating earthquake that occurred on Saturday, April 25th. You can support the relief efforts by bringing monetary donations to the Mission and Ministry Center front desk or you may contribute online at
Nidan Foundation Nepal is a non-profit foundation registered in Nepal that was founded by Slesha Thapa, a Saint Mary's College alumna who has led Lasallian Service Internship trips to Nepal (pictures above). More information on the Nidan Foundation and their work can be found at nidanfoundation.org.
KTVU Channel 2 news featured the recent Peace Out Interfaith Prayer Gathering, where the focus was on remembering the people of Nepal and all those affected by the earthquake. The video from KTVU can be found here.
Looking to become a more active Lasallian at Saint Mary's College? The Mission and Ministry Center is here to help!
The Mission and Ministry Center cultivates our Catholic and Lasallian Culture on campus through a variety of programs and activities that help students become more involved in our community. You can participate in a weekend immersion trip that will expose you to the life of migrant workers, enjoy a retreat at the Russian River to reflect on your spirituality and build community, serve others outside of Saint Mary's working evening dinner service at the Berkeley Food & Housing Project, and engage in coffee and conversation on Friday mornings.
Take a break and visit the beautiful chapel for some quiet time of prayer and contemplation. All are welcome to daily Mass, twice weekly meditation or any of the many prayer opportunities.
If you really want to dive into Lasallian life, you can become a Lasallian Peer Minister, a Community Leader, or a Sacristan and work with the MMC team on presence, programs and experiences that give spirit and voice to our Catholic and Lasallian Mission.
Each year we honor our Lasallian Legacy during De La Salle Week in the spring where we celebrate our heritage, enjoy time as a community and honor a distinguished Lasallian educator with an honorary doctorate.
So, go ahead and explore the infinite opportunities Saint Mary's offers to truly Live Lasallian!
