Center for Service

Seeking to embody the Gospel call through Augustinian Tradition and Catholic Social Teaching, the Campus Ministry Center for Service and Social Justice is committed to transforming the minds and hearts of the Villanova community through service, advocacy, and justice education. Calling the Villanova community to commit to the challenge of solidarity and activism, we prophetically work for the common good through reciprocal partnerships and accompaniment with our local and global neighbors.

In the spirit of Augustine,who urged his followers to search for God together, consider this reflection on Sunday’s Gospel. Jesus has been speaking to us in parables for the past few Sunday Gospels, and this week is no exception. Christ relays a parable in which a benevolent king sees his invitation to his son’s wedding feast fall on deaf ears. Once the invited guests ignore him, he instructs his servants to invite all of his subjects to the feast, where they revel in the celebration. Which invitees are we in this parable? Are we the originally invited guests, too busy with work and our own interests to hear the invitation? Or are we the later guests, happy to be a part of the festivities and relishing the gift? Let us note if we are hearing God’s invitation or if we are filling our lives with busy activities that do not allow us to take advantage of God’s love.

Get involved in action that seeks to bring about peace and justice in the world, learn about Catholic Social Teaching, and social justice advocacy.
