Religious Organizations

In South Bend and Mishawaka, you can find hundreds of students volunteering or worshiping in a wide variety of religious organizations.  In addition to churches of the Catholic diocese of Fort Wayne/South Bend, or the United Religious Community, here are a small sampling of enduring religious partners.

Broadway Christian Parish UMC

Broadway Christian Parish is a United Methodist congregation in the Southeast neighborhood of South Bend, Indiana. Together we hear and share the good news of God's abiding love for all. And, together we live out our call to ministry and service, bringing a message of hope, faith and joy. Our ministries of hospitality include a food pantry and a breakfast and fellowship time Monday through Thursday mornings -- a place to come in off the street and take a shower, get a fresh set of clothing, do laundry, and receive other assistance.


Catholic Charities

Our services represent an entire continuum. We help people at every stage of life, from the infants we place with loving adoptive families, to the older adults we provide with life-enhancing volunteer experiences and affordable retirement living. Our ultimate goal is to strengthen families, assist the most vulnerable among us, and make our communities better places to live.


Catholic Worker House

We are a community of Catholics inspired by the example of Dorothy Day. We feed and shelter the homeless, practice the works of mercy, and oppose the works of war.


Christ Child Society

For the past 67 years, the primary project of the Christ Child Society in South Bend has been to provide new winter clothing to economically disadvantaged children from newborn through age twelve without consideration of religion or ethnic factors. Currently our services include layettes, winter clothing for children, providing a book for a child, and tutoring/mentoring.


Little Flower Catholic Church

St. Thèrése, Little Flower Catholic Church, is an active parish on the north side of South Bend. Our parish is dedicated to a life of prayer and a life of service to others. We are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our world today, with a mission to share the faith, to serve others, and to promote peace and justice in our world. All are welcomed, loved and needed in our parish family.


Sisters of the Holy Cross

We, Sisters of the Holy Cross throughout the world, are called to participate in the prophetic mission of Jesus to witness God’s love for all creation. Compassion moves us to reflect on the signs of the times, discern needs, and respond. We stand in solidarity with the poor and the powerless. Our life together enriches and strengthens us to foster community wherever we are.
