Spiritual Life Community (SLC)

What is SLC?

Spiritual Life Community (SLC) is made up of students committed to building a community that discerns and celebrates God’s presence, moving us into action that better leads to God’s deeping life in us as individuals and as a community. 

Community members meet for one hour each week with their respective small groups of 6-10 members to bond, pray, reflect on life and explore God’s callings. We also gather regularly through various platforms for large group activities: social events, prayer services, faith discussions, and service projects.  

We follow the inspiration of St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), in our quest for deeper self-knowledge. We share this vision with members of CLC (Christian Life Community) in almost 60 countries around the world. Thus, we are part of a worldwide body of small faith communities that use the insights & tools of the Jesuit tradition. We are enriched by participants from various or no faith traditions and celebrate everyone exactly as they are. All are welcome and we encourage you to reflect on the following questions to discern your commitment to this uplifting community:

Do you want to...

...deepen your relationship with the Divine on your unique journey of faith?

...build authentic, honest, and nourishing friendships?

...expand your own self-understanding?

...share your faith and/or what is going on in your life with other students?

…take action to grow with others through service?
