Formation of Servant Leaders
Jesus' message is to love your neighbor and serve your brothers and sisters. "Our love is not to be just words or mere talk, but something real and active." (1 Jn. 3:18)
Bellarmine graduates young men and women of competence, compassion and conscience, who are committed to leadership and service.
