Service

The Gospel calls us to care for the most vulnerable among us - the poor, the sick, the elderly and the unborn. Members of the Pitt-Johnstown community are encouraged to give of themselves in the service of others through a number of community service opportunities, and to be a voice for peace and justice on campus and in the community through education, reflection and social action.

Pitt-Johnstown Service Initiatives include:

  • Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion to the Sick. A regular commitment in which students administer Communion, visit and pray with the elderly and homebound residents of a nearby nursing home.
  • Annual Opportunities
    • Daffodil Days. Help raise money and awareness for the American Cancer Society by purchasing some daffodils. The prices for these spring flowers can't be beat, especially for a great cause.
    • MLK Day of Service. Open to all students, we will help serve the needs of the local community by having a "day on, not a day off."
    • March for Life.  Held each January in Washington, DC, to promote the pro-life message and combat the culture of death, members of the Pitt-Johnstown community will journey to join in the prayer for the unborn, those considering abortion and individuals on death row.

Spring Break Mission Trip. Offered through Protestant Campus Ministry, students will travel to a community within the United States to minister to people from various walks of life.
