Service & Social Justice
A Homily on Immigration
By Fr. Jack
Habitat for Humanity
Students joining with parishioners are invited to take part in Habitat for Humanity projects. Habitat is a faith-based organization that builds, remodels, and sells houses to qualified home buyers who do “sweat equity” on the construction of their future home. No skills are required. Transportation to the work site is available for interested students.
For more information please contact a Campus Minister.
UB -St. Joe's gathers students together for other volunteer service opportunities in and around Buffalo as they become available. Past service opportunities include:
Volunteering with the St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy Clothing Closet
St. Joe's supports over two dozen social justice initiatives, ranging from gun violence prevention to feeding the hungry. For more information please contact a Campus Minister if you want to find out how you can be a part of one of these groups to put your faith into action!
We are part of a national and global community, so our community engagement must extend beyond the Buffalo city borders. Join us for an immersion experience into another culture as we seek to expand our prayer lives, volunteer experiences, and understanding of neighbor. Past trips include:
Philadelphia, PA: St. Francis Inn
Disaster Relief efforts
International travel to Jamaica and Cuba
