Mercy Center for Spiritual Life

The Mercy Center for Spiritual Life encourages and supports religious and spiritual life on the Salve Regina campus. We have our roots and find our focus in the gospel of Jesus Christ, the rich heritage of the Roman Catholic Church and the charism of the Sisters of Mercy.

In keeping with the mission of the University, we warmly welcome people of all beliefs to engage in a lively and respectful practice of their faith; to seek wisdom; to promote universal justice, especially by practicing the spiritual and corporal works of mercy; and to deepen their relationship with God.

2015 Alternative Spring Break

Have you ever wanted to volunteer in the community but can't seem to find the time or the right opportunity? What if you could do that among old and new friends alike? Join us for the Alternative Spring Break, an opportunity for students to give up a portion of their break to volunteer in and around Rhode Island. Students will remain on campus and travel to locations throughout Aquidneck Island and the state. All food and transportation provided.

Alternative Spring Break will run from Friday, March 6 to Tuesday, March 10. Fifteen spots are available, and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost is $25 (payment due within a week after registering). Registration will remain open until all spots are filled, or until Thursday, Feb. 19.

Mercy in Motion

Mercy in Motion is a student-led group that promotes spiritual life on campus through weekly events and programs that highlight community, prayer and service. Students develop skills as peer ministers, leaders and role models through their involvement with the Mercy Center for Spiritual Life.

Whether Mercy in Motion is gathering for a dinner discussion, cooking a meal for the local homeless shelter or having a community game night, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. All undergraduate students are welcome and invited to get involved.
