Mission and Ministry at Gonzaga

by Luke Lavin, Senior Coordinator for Office of Mission & Ministry

The Mission and Ministry team supports the Gonzaga community in fulfilling our Jesuit, Catholic, humanistic mission.

We believe that mission can never be separated from ministry. Therefore, our team is missioned to serve the Gonzaga community by providing support, animation, and leadership in three main categories:

Spiritual and Pastoral Care

Retreats provide an opportunity for going deeper, both as individuals and as a community. We offer an extensive retreat program throughout the academic year as well as other spiritual opportunities for all faiths.

  • First Year Retreat
  • Montserrat
  • Pilgrimage
  • Search
  • Women’s and Men’s Retreats
  • Daily and Sunday Mass
  • Confessions
  • Adoration and Benediction
  • Off campus worship for students of all faiths

Discernment and Leadership

Discernment (both individually and communally) is an important way of being and proceeding as we seek to respond with gratitude and generosity to God’s invitation of love.

  • Christian Life Communities (CLC)
  • Student Assistant Leadership Team (SALT)
  • Mission Identity and Purpose

We bring this heritage into our promotion and education of the Gonzaga mission, and we strive to incorporate that sense of mission and call to action in all that we do. St. Ignatius of Loyola directed his followers to “Go Forth and Set the World on Fire.” Our goal is to educate and prepare men and women to follow that directive no matter what they do or where they go.
