Oasis is a confidential, small group opportunity where a safe zone is established to engage in an open dialogue about the issues relevant to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, or questioning individuals. Participants share their experiences and connect with one another on their journey.
Oasis is open to all students trying to understand issues of sexual orientation or gender identity and offers relief from isolation and an opportunity to find true friendship, and the authentic Augustinian community that results from a common dedication to the truth and a shared vision of the dignity of the human person.
Oasis meets regularly in the evening throughout the semester. For further information contact Father Joe Calderone at  519–7477. We will discreetly respond to all earnest calls with the location and time of our next meeting.
Villanova University is dedicated to the pastoral care of the entire Villanova community and understands its outreach to the LGBTQ community in the context of our University Mission Statement,
"Villanova seeks to reflect the spirit of St. Augustine by the cultivation of knowledge, by respect for individual differences, and by the adherence to the principle that mutual love and respect should animate every aspect of University life."
