The Christian Action Team (CAT) is formed to give students opportunities to fulfill the mission of the school by practicing the Works of Mercy. Members of the Christian Action Team seek to live as disciples of Jesus by building relationships with people in need through the Works of Mercy. While every student is potentially a member of CAT, membership in CAT requires a student to participate in Christian service activities and regularly attend the weekly meetings of CAT. CAT meets every Thursday to celebrate the spirit of Christian service in the Saint Ignatius community. CAT Meetings are where students from all four years learn about ways in which they can answer Jesus’ call to serve those most in need and sign up for unique Christian service opportunities through CAT and the Arrupe Neighborhood Partnership. CAT publishes a weekly calendar of Christian service events and opportunities.CAT meetings are held on Thursdays at 3:00 p.m. in Loyola Hall, Room 227.

"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you made me welcome, lacking clothes and you clothed me, sick and you visited me, in prison and you came to see me."
"And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.' "Then He will answer them, saying, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.' "And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."
