Ecumenical and Multi-faith
Gonzaga University lives out the Jesuit legacy by calling all members of the university community - regardless of religious tradition - to integrate their faith and learning, and to share their gifts with the world.
Central to this mission is the primary mandate to help each community member to develop his or her unique faith life through worship, reflection, and service, a goal that is manifested in our ongoing commitment to promote ecumenical and inter-religious understanding. Through these practices, we commit ourselves to foster understanding and respect between and among the various religious traditions embraced by members of our community and to seek justice and peace in our community and world.
University Ministry has connections to the surrounding community and can link students to various traditions to local churches and houses of worship. For local places of worship click here.
