FIAT (Faith in Action Together)
Faith in Action Together is a club that welcomes all different faith denominations while seeking to build companionship, as people on a spiritual journey. In solidarity with others, FIAT aims to put one's faith into action, which includes but is not limited to: Social justice initiatives, community service, meditations, retreats, and faith-sharing. If interested in participating in FIAT or learning more, please contact Graduate Assistant Brya Rogers at email@example.com
Retreats are opportunities to get away from your busy life to spend time in quiet reflection and small group sharing. Campus Ministry offers retreats several times during the year, including our fall Quest retreat and our spring Labyrinth Walk. For more information about how to attend a retreat, please contact Jenny Girard Malley at firstname.lastname@example.org
Individual Spiritual Direction
How do you experience God's presence in the joys and challenges of your life? Where is the Spirit leading you as you make decisions for the future? How does the Spirit call you into deeper faith and more generous service?
These, and questions like them, are at the heart of one-on-one spiritual direction. A Spiritual Director does not give advice or answers, but helps "a person to pay attention to God's movement within your life.” Campus Ministry offers spiritual direction as requested to any student, staff or faculty member. Please contact Jenny Girard Malley at email@example.com
Holy Names offers personal counseling to all students regardless of belief or faith. Counseling is a time set aside for you to explore how you are feeling, what you want, and what is and is not working in your life. HNU's counselors are trained professionals with doctoral level education in counseling and clinical psychology. Our counselors specialize in working with college students and understand that your lives involve more than just school. Counselors are open, non-judgmental, and culturally sensitive people who are here to listen and to help you negotiate life's challenges. Please contact, firstname.lastname@example.org, 510-436-1530.
RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)
This is a process for members of the Holy Names University community who are seeking the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and/or Eucharist.
