Gonzaga Law Ministry

Wherever you are on your faith journey, the Chaplain at Gonzaga School of Law and the Office of Mission and Ministry at Gonzaga University are here to help you explore who you are, strengthen your relationship with God, and grow into the person you are destined to become.

Our concern for the dignity of every human being as God's cherished child compels us to accompany everyone to discover the deepest longing in their lives.

As a Jesuit Catholic institution, we are dedicated to promoting the spiritual growth and faith formation of our students so that they, in addition to becoming outstanding practitioners of the law, also will become agents of transformation for a more just and equitable world—thus, living the motto of Jesuit formation: to become men and women for and with others!

The Office of Mission and Ministry provides pastoral and spiritual support for the Gonzaga Law Community through pastoral counseling, liturgy, spiritual accompaniment, sacramental preparation, the Chapel of St. Ignatius, and mission formation events. In addition to our weekly 12:10pm eucharistic celebration on Wednesdays, masses will also be celebrated in our Law School’s chapel on holidays of obligation during the academic calendar.

For more information, please do not hesitate to contact the Law School’s Chaplain, Fr. Bryan Pham, S.J. Law School, Room 129 or at 509.313.5793
