Voting Resources Available for Election Day

The Center for Service and Community Engagement and the Department of Campus Ministry have provided resources for reflection and voting reminders as the Nov. 8 election approaches.

Resources

Ignatian Examen for Civic Life

The Department of Campus Ministry is offering free copies of the Ignatian Examen for Civic Life, produced by the Ignatian Solidarity Network. The document, which is a call to be contemplatives in action, offers the opportunity for reflection and encourages readers to talk with God in specific ways about the interrelationship between Gospel values and political engagement.

Copies are available at the Eckelkamp Center for Campus Ministry (Wuller Hall) or in the Center for Service and Community Engagement in the Center for Global Citizenship.

Contact Sue Chawszczewski, director of campus ministry, at schawszc@slu.edu with any questions.
