Get Involved through Campus Ministry's Center for Social Concern
If you keep up with the news, it's easy to get cynical and try to hide from the world. Faith calls us to the opposite response: hope and action. Feed the hungry. Shelter the homeless. Care for the sick. Tutor the kids who need help. Protect the vulnerable. Care for God's creation. Learn more about social problems. Lobby political and economic leaders to make positive changes. You can answer your call by getting involved in the upcoming CSC opportunities listed below or in the blue box to the left.

Pray for the people of the Philippines
Prayer for the Philippines
God, who quiets great winds and stills rough seas
We ask your protection for the people of the Philippines.
Comfort them in their fear.
Stay close to them in their danger.
And we ask the intercession of Your Blessed Mother
That together with her and with all your holy saints
We may stand in solidarity with our Filipino brothers and sisters
through their darkest hour
through their longest night.
Give us the courage to remain steadfast
To reach out to them in their need
To comfort them in their sorrow
To hold them as closely as You hold them
To see them through to morning.
Because of the generosity of many within the UD community, including individuals as well as departments, we were able to once again provide Thanksgiving dinner, for over 600 families in the Dayton area. For one day out of their struggling lives, families are able to celebrate an American tradition with dignity. This incredible community of love and support has brought Christ into the world for many people. Our Dayton community is still in great need, and as we enter into the holy season of Advent and Christmas, we are reminded of the child born in Bethlehem calling each of us to continue to bring His message of hope & love to our world.Top
