Service & Justice in Action – Trinity’s Spirituality

At Trinity, we believe education and faith/spirituality are transforming powers. Through education, we come to understand the issues and context of poverty. Through the values of faith/spirituality, we are invited personally and communally to “do justice.” The stage is set for action, for making a difference for the world in which we live.

Emily Sikazwe, Director of Women for Change in Zambia, speaks about the empowerment of women and African culture.

As we grow academically, our students gain knowledge and people skills, experience cultural and socioeconomic diversity, and grow in personal awareness and compassion. We become more aware of our role as global citizens. We become the “advocates for justice, peace and reverence of all human life”. (Adapted from Empowered by the Spirit #73, A letter about Campus Ministry from the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops, 1985.)

Campus Ministry pursues justice through:

      • weekly service opportunities
      • an Alternative Spring Break service trip (ASB)
      • community based learning (Cunneen Fellowships)
      • alumnae/i presentations on social justice initiatives (“Sower’s Seed” Lecture)
      • advocacy projects

We hope to form a habit of serving and doing justice that not only reaches out to individuals but to communities as well.

We build relationships over time with service agencies both near and far. Often we share a common vision and sometimes a joint project. We stand with our service partners in solidarity working for a common good. Many of our efforts happen here in Ward 5 while other programs take us to vital partner locations, like THEARC in Southeast.

Whether the project is a one time event, a semester-long weekly commitment or an ongoing project that spans several years, our students gain experience and social analysis skills. The lessons learned about the issues surrounding poverty, the day-to-day lives of the poor, and one’s own gifts for making a difference are life-changing.
