The Br. David Darst Center provides transformative urban immersion experiences and educational programs in the Lasallian tradition. By exploring issues of peace and justice through the lens of Catholic Social Teaching, we seek to inspire an active and engaged faith, a commitment to serve, and a personal passion for social change.
