Focus on faith and service.

A Catholic university, St. John’s was founded in 1870 by the Congregation of the Mission (also known as the Vincentians). Today the Vincentian spirit lives in our students, faculty, administrators, and staff who perform nearly 140 000 hours of service each year. Whether volunteering at service Plunges in the US and abroad, at local soup kitchens, or on Midnight Runs in the streets of Manhattan, our St. John’s family devotes intellectual and physical resources to seek out the causes of poverty and social injustice and find practical meaningful solutions.
