CRS (Catholic Relief Services) Ambassadors

FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes)
Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ. FCA is the largest Christian sports organization in the world.
IFTJ (Ignatian Family Teach-in for Justice)
The Ignatian Family Teach-in for Justice (IFTJ) is an opportunity to gather with fellow students from Jesuit Colleges and Universities in the pursuit of faith, justice and solidarity. Participants immerse themselves in focused reflection, learning and prayer about the Jesuit martyrs of El Salvador, Catholic Social Teaching, Social Justice, and what it means to be called into action.
The program has two facets: in the fall, participants prepare for the Teach-In – a conference and advocacy day on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. – and in the spring, attendees engage Gonzaga’s campus in awareness and advocacy programming. Gonzaga’s IFTJ delegation is co-sponsored by CCE and the Office of Mission and Ministry.
As an interdenominational and multi-ethnic community, we are a fellowship of people from a diversity of backgrounds both culturally and spiritually who come together out of our common love for Jesus. We are passionate about prayer, studying scripture, justice, and racial reconciliation. Whether you have been a follower of Jesus for many years or are simply interested in exploring the Christian faith we welcome you. Contact May Kytonen firstname.lastname@example.org
What does it mean to be a “man” in the 21st century? Our media, culture, and experience tell us vastly different and often conflicting answers. Perhaps our Christian tradition can pinpoint definite and discernable male qualities in the incarnate person of Jesus Christ. Men’s Ministry, emboldened by our Jesuit, Catholic, and humanistic heritage and identity, challenges the current notions of manhood and calls men to a wholistic embrace of authentic identity. Men’s Ministry is done through retreats, events, leadership training panels, prayer groups, discussion groups, book groups, activism, social justice, spiritual development, and community building and engagement.
Students for Life

The life issues they focus on include abortion, the death penalty, euthanasia, and assisted suicide.
