Support Mission and Ministry

At Villanova, we believe that the dialogue between faith and reason drives the pursuit of knowledge and wisdom. Rooted in this mission, the Office for Mission and Ministry is dedicated to providing opportunities for Villanovans to join together as they seek truth, explore spirituality and serve our communities. Through spiritual and scholarly programming, service, advocacy, multifaith opportunities and research on contemporary issues through the lens of Catholic social thought, our community grows in truth, unity and love. 

The Office for Mission and Ministry manages several centers and areas on campus, including Campus Ministry, Faith & Learning, Peace & Justice Education and the Center for the Common Good, while also leading a partnership with the Office of the Vice President and Catholic Relief Services.

Your generosity on 1842 Day supports programming, open dialogue and partnerships that keep Villanovans engaged in—and inspired by—their faith.
