FRANCISCAN SPIRIT CLUB

The Franciscan Spirit Club takes a leadership role among the student body in animating the spirit of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi in the Hilbert College community by providing opportunities for spiritual enrichment, communal growth, and service to those in need. You will experience community and faith building, receive leadership and ministry training, gain exposure to social justice issues, and participate in community service. There are also opportunities for social events and retreats. Membership is open to all students. Contact Campus Ministry to find out more!
