Mission, Ministry & Interfaith Dialogue

Inspired by the charism of St. Francis of Assisi and flowing from the mission of St. Francis College, the programs offered by the Office of Mission, Ministry & Interfaith Dialogue are aimed at the development of the whole person.

We seek to provide an atmosphere of genuine friendship and support, and we strive to promote a strong and inclusive community through social responsibility, mutual respect, service, justice, and spiritual growth. Working in collaboration with other departments, the Office focuses particularly on the spiritual development of students and the college community.
