In the spirit of the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph, the Center for Ministry and Service at Regis College seeks to offer students the opportunity to serve our “dear neighbor”. The service programs offered by the Center for Ministry and Service provide students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to stand in solidarity with our dear neighbors who find themselves living on the margins of our community. Throughout the year the Center for Ministry and Service offers volunteer opportunities in the Greater Boston area. Here are the a few of the initiatives we offer:
Each year the Regis community honors its founders, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston, with a day of service. The sisters founded Regis with a set of core values including love and service of the dear neighbor without distinction. In this community day of service, students, faculty and staff volunteer in the Greater Boston area serving our dear neighbors in diverse ways. Some of the volunteer sites include: Cradles to Crayons, St. Francis House, Hope Lodge, Bethany Hill Place Health Center, Community Servings, Notre Dame Cristo Rey in Lawrence, Department of Conservation and Recreation, Weston Trails, American Red Cross, and more.
Regis College encourages weekly service opportunities with Bethany Hill Place, a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of St. Joseph. Bethany Hill Place is a living and learning community of neighbors that provides independent, affordable housing and educational opportunities. As part of this program, Regis students go to Bethany Hill Place weekly to serve as tutors to children ages five through twelve in Bethany Hill Place’s Homework Club. If this is an opportunity you are interested in come to the Club Fair in the fall or contact the Center for Ministry and Service. We are currently relaunching this program after a break due to COVID.
Formerly known as the Campus Ministry Club, this student organization provides opportunities for people of all faiths to grow spiritually through service. Together, student leaders and campus ministers plan and participate in retreats, community service, faith sharing, social events, social justice, advocacy and more. Visit CMS to learn more.
