Romero House is a Regis University student residence that was established in 1992 as an opportunity for undergraduates to experience an intentional community in service of others, with a commitment to social justice, exploring faith and spirituality and living a simple lifestyle. Romero House students strive to live out Archbishop Romero's call to immerse themselves in the world. The Romero House resident's primary responsibility is to cultivate an intentional community with fellow residents while striving to live in solidarity with the poor; doing service at local non-profits; and exploring issues of faith and justice through communal spirituality sessions, a bi-weekly class about spirituality and engagement in the world, and personal and group reflection. The Romero House residents are commissioned to the call of community in a variety of ways. Their duties include a minimum of eight hours of service at a local non-profit or low income school a week, scheduled community dinners and time for spiritual growth with the community, a bi-weekly faith and justice hospitality night, living in economic solidarity with the poor, and a commitment to being fully present as a member of the Romero House community. The students accepted into Romero House are required to live there for a full academic year and live out the pillars of service, community, solidarity, simplicity, spirituality and justice. We expect that those who apply are willing to accept the challenges and joys of making Romero House their number one commitment outside of academics. Upon acceptance and commitment to this program students are given a scholarship to cover their housing and humble communal food stipend for the academic year. If there are any interested prospective Romero House students please pick up an application from the Center for Service Learning (Main Hall 214) or on the bulletin board in Loyola Hall.
