To love God and neighbor is not something abstract, but profoundly concrete: it means seeing in every person the face of the Lord to be served, to serve him concretely. And you are, dear brothers and sisters, the face of Jesus. –Pope Francis

Islander Catholic and the Newman Center work to answer God’s call to love others in concrete ways through service. Whether we are serving those in need in Corpus Christi through volunteering at the food bank or shelters, the local parishes by helping at their events, or the university family around us every day, we seek to bring God’s love, joy and hope to those around us.

We plan events for the first Saturday of each month during the school year. See our planned service opportunities here, and check back for more throughout the semester.
