Nourished by Jesus Christ and St. John Baptist de La Salle, The Mission and Ministry Center gives expression to and fosters the Catholic
Lasallian heritage and mission at Saint Mary’s. Staff and student leaders support the Catholic Lasallian identity in the context of a liberal arts education through the promotion and animation of the five Lasallian core principles: Faith in the Presence of God, Concern for the Poor and Social Justice, Quality Education, Inclusive Community, and Respect for All Persons.
The Center welcomes and serves students of ALL faith traditions who are seeking deeper understanding and expression of their faith and relationship with God. The core areas of the Mission and Ministry Center include: faith formation, Lasallian mission
education, liturgy and prayer, justice education and immersions, two Living and Learning Communities (integrating faith, service and community), retreats, and developing student leaders as ministers.
