As a community that aspires to radical hospitality fostering belonging, the student leaders and professional staff go out to the campus, our local community, and the world from our home in the University Ministry Center.

The Four Pillars

Our community is guided by the Four Pillars. More than 800 years ago, St. Dominic encouraged all those he encountered to live a life dedicated to the Holy Preaching. This was not an abstract call to deeper faithfulness, but an invitation to a way of life. Over time, the Dominican Order began to understand four different facets of this Preaching—Prayer, Study, Community and Service. Those qualities, now named the Four Pillars, connect every aspect of daily living through the power of the Spirit.
