Our Campus Ministry team is dedicated to providing experiences that bring Saintsmen into contact with the global Church as well as to dedicated service for the poorest of our world.
Our biggest highlight has been leading students to the global World Youth Days (WYD) hosted by the Holy Father, as well as the Augustinian Youth Encounters (AYE) that occur the week before or after the WYDs. Since 2011 we have gone on pilgrimage to the Madrid WYD of 2011, the Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo WYD and AYE of 2013, the Krakow and Prague WYD and AYE of 2016, the Panama City and David/Tole WYD and AYE 2018, and the Lisbon WYD and AYE of 2023.
During the annual January intersession, we host two different service trips. One trip goes to Italy to visit important religious and cultural markers as well as Augustinian Heritage sites. The students on this trip also serve for several days at the Augustinian monastery in San Gimignano, a UNESCO protected Tuscan hilltop town in which the Augustinians have served since the 1400s. The other trip goes to Guatemala, where Saintsmen serve at the San Lucas Mission as well as visit Antigua and other historic sites in the country.
