Student Leadership Opportunities
The Office for Spirituality is depends upon the leadership and service of students at St. Thomas. Students can get involved in the many activities and events of the Office for Spirituality as student leaders and volunteers. Some of the many ways you can get involved are:
Are you interested in living out the Gospel message to love and serve your neighbor by doing outreach to the undergraduate student body? Peer Ministers are a group of 8 students within the Office for Spirituality committed to this Gospel call. Peer Ministers offer welcoming, guidance, compassion and faith-filled support for their peers. They also offer a safe place for the soul to question, ponder, explore, grow, and develop faith. Peer Ministers invite students to opportunities for spiritual development and faith awareness through prayer, faith sharing, and faith related programs and activities. Peer Ministers help build hospitable community, and are available to students for listening and referral opportunities. The Peer Ministry team also leads and participates in various retreats offered through Office for Spirituality. If you are interested in becoming a Peer Minister and would like to learn more visit the Peer Ministry page.
The Office for Spirituality offers several retreats each semester for our students. We often need peer leaders for talks, small groups, and leading music. Each year, the Campus Ministry team draws upon the amazing talent of students in creating and offering powerful retreat experiences for students throughout the year. Talk to Susan Stabile if you are interested in being part of a team. We also hire two retreat assistants each year.
