Walsh Jesuit students answer the call to put our faith into action through participation in the Campus Ministry service programs. Students are encouraged to participate in a variety of service opportunities and connect their service experience with their faith in ever-deeper ways. Through these service ministries, students directly experience the profound truth that in giving we receive.
