‘Mission Matters' will highlight University's Jesuit history, spirituality programs
Saint Louis University students, faculty, staff and administrators believe that mission matters. To demonstrate and develop that belief, the Division of University Mission and Ministry soon will launch a new weekly feature in the SLU Newslink Daily Update email.
“Mission Matters” will highlight interesting facts and footnotes about the University’s Jesuit history and tradition, provide information and updates about Jesuits worldwide, and promote upcoming mission programs at SLU.
Also, members of the SLU community will be encouraged to share stories about their colleagues and classmates living the mission in big ways and small, on and off campus.
Eventually, all of the “Mission Matters” content will be archived on the mission and ministry website, which Paul Stark, S.J., vice president for mission and ministry, said will become a “one-stop” location for mission-related information, providing a variety of opportunities for education, formation and service.
“At Saint Louis U., we all know that mission matters,” Stark said. “This new feature in Newslink will highlight some of the particular matters that make up our mission.”
University Mission and Ministry includes the Eckelkamp Center for Campus Ministry and Pastoral Care at SLU Hospital. The division also offers retreats, programs, conferences and numerous other initiatives to help faculty, staff and students develop prayer and spirituality.
