Faith, Hope and Love are three virtues St. Augustine trumpeted as foundational for Christian living. We at Villanova College are called to live in faith, in hope and in love through service to one another as Jesus taught and St. Thomas of Villanova modeled. In this spirit, every student is expected to complete individual Christian Service hours and an associated project. The sincerest way of expressing thankfulness for blessings received, and to put into action our call to active Christian discipleship, is to use the gifts and talents we have for the benefit of God's people. It is our hope that a student's service experience will go beyond simple volunteering and provide an opportunity for students to learn more about themselves and the world around them and to aid in the process of making this world a better place.
Faith without works is dead.
– James 2:26
Child Sponsorship has been one of my most fruitful experiences at VC. Receiving letters from our sponsored children is a reward like no other, and instills in me a greater zeal for helping those who are less fortunate. I know that the leadership skills I've attained are literally going a long way.
