Catholic Volunteer Network Honors Lewis University Ministry

Published: May 9, 2020.

The Catholic Volunteer Network honored Lewis University Ministry as one of their network’s Top Schools for Service in the Midwest. The Catholic Volunteer Network is the leading membership organization of Christian volunteer and mission programs. It supports and enhances the work of its members through volunteer recruitment, training and resources, networking opportunities, and advocacy.

Lewis University Ministry’s office is one of a special group of campus ministry and service-learning offices nationwide that have demonstrated excellence in supporting young adults and in advocating for post-graduate service programs.  

In particular, Jake DeMarais, associate director/coordinator of Ministry Service, and Diana Lockett, Lasallian Volunteer Scholar and graduate assistant in ministry, have continued to offer an annual post-grad service fair each fall. The event has attracted over 20 different post-graduate service programs to Lewis University creating an opportunity for over 75 students each year to see what life in one of these programs looks like. 

In addition, utilizing the Lasallian Network, Lockett has headed up the team of Lasallian Volunteer Scholars on campus - Baraka Douglas graduate assistant in Academic Services and Leisha Adrianzen graduate assistant in the Office of Technology - to recruit for the Lasallian Volunteers program. They hosted multiple informational sessions, visits to the local Chicago LV community house, and the bi-annual current Lasallian Volunteer visit. This past fall, Alumna Ashley Mitchell made her rounds in Lewis University classes. 

Lewis University is an innovative and forward-thinking Catholic university offering market-relevant undergraduate and graduate programs to 6,300 students. Sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers, Lewis University is nationally recognized for preparing intellectually engaged, ethically grounded, globally connected and socially responsible graduates.
