Prayer and Worship

Our four Franciscan Values are central to our Catholic, Franciscan identity:

Making Peace
Creating a Caring Community
Showing Compassion 
Care for Creation 

 
One way our community engages its Cathoic, Franciscan identity is by supporting the faith life of our students, staff, and faculty.  We work to encourage students, in particular, to live out their faith through prayer and worship events that occur throught the academic year.  Celebrations are held throughout the year acknowledging the influence of Ss. Francis, Clare, other Franciscans and people of faith who have inspired us.
