Interfaith Engagement at LMU
The third pillar of LMU's mission statement is "the service of faith and promotion of justice."
As a Catholic, Ignatian, Jesuit, and Marymount institution, we take seriously both parts of this phrase. The "service of faith" encompasses all those ways in which the University engages its Catholic intellectual, cultural, and religious heritage. This pillar also honors the reality of religious pluralism on our campus and embraces ecumenical and interfaith dialogue in formal and informal contexts. The desired outcome of such encounters moves us beyond tolerance to mutual respect and understanding, deepens appreciation of one's own faith, and creates opportunities for engaging others who share a longing for meaningful lives.
