Mountain Community Leaders

To form and mentor St. Bonaventure student leadership and peer ministry, Mountain Community Leaders (known as Students for the Mountain in previous generations) meet on Sunday evenings in full session for prayer, formation and business, but meet more frequently in “spokes” (sub-groups including hospitality, publicity, academic and residence life) with two friar mentors to organize programs. These students offer one another peer ministry, gaining leadership skills, group communications, and learn and teach ways of praying with others. Along with friars, they lead all activities at the Mountain that are in service to the University community.


Mission Statement

Rooted in the Catholic Franciscan tradition, the Mountain Community Leaders serve as ministers primarily to the Mt. Irenaeus and the St. Bonaventure communities. It is through the Gospel values of faith, peace, hope and love that we seek to offer opportunities for the presence of God to surface in everyday life.  Joined as a family we are committed to one another for spiritual, emotional, physical and mental support on our journey of discipleship.  Through our leadership and ministry, we hope to better exemplify the love of God in Jesus.  This love empowers us to “go into all the world and proclaim the Good News” of God’s reign, and to stretch our community to include all peoples in the way of Jesus.
