The Ignatian principle of the "magis" invites each person to strive for ways that we can do more in our daily lives.
Through prayer, reflection and action, each member of the Canisius community is challenged to develop a relationship with God in service to each person we encounter, especially those most in need.
Campus Ministry programs focus on building a faith community that fosters members who are open to growth, loving, religious, intellectual, and committed to justice. This is accomplished through retreat programs, service to the local community, and service immersion trips that travel abroad and to communities throughout the U.S. A vibrant liturgical life also serves to build towards these goals.
The mission was started over 450 years ago by the first Jesuit, St. Ignatius Loyola. Ignatius challenges us to find God in all things, develop a personal relationship with God based on our daily experience, and live for God’s greater glory. This Jesuit and Catholic identity animates all that we do and empowers us to nurture the spirituality and moral development of a diverse student body.
