The Center for Christian Spirituality (CCS), based on Christian spirituality rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition, welcomes a broad horizon for learning, understanding, dialogue, and appreciation of the diversity of beliefs and cultures that enrich our community. As part of a university setting, and the division of Mission and Ministry, the Center cherishes both faith and reason and wishes to support all who seek to shape their lives in a manner consonant with their deepest values and meaning.
The Center for Christian Spirituality is an expression of the University of San Diego’s core values. We seek to serve our San Diego community at large and its surrounding areas, with programming that contributes to the spiritual development of all.
“Eros, what St. John of the Cross calls “love’s urgent longings,” is the starting point of the spiritual life, and spirituality is how we handle that eros.”
– Ronald Rolheiser, The Holy Longing
