Service on Saturdays

Hoping to make a sustainable impact on our students well beyond their days at Seton Hall, SOS will provide them the opportunity to integrate their education with direct service to the community. Service on Saturdays celebrates Seton Hall's Catholic Mission by responding to the call to love our neighbors.

Our Mission

The Division of Volunteer Efforts (DOVE) aims to raise the Seton Hall community's awareness of social injustice by directly serving others.

Stemming from our desire to affirm all people's dignity and live as Christ taught us by putting our faith into action, this service supports Seton Hall's commitment to developing compassionate individuals rooted in and guided by faith and its expression in firm moral convictions.
