VERITAS is a Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose (MSJ) sponsored organization composed of selected juniors and seniors known as Veritas Student Campus Ministers who live out Christian leadership ideals in the spirit of our Dominican Foundress Mother Pia and Founder St. Dominic de Guzman. Veritas members attend training to lead as Dominic did on their summer retreats at the Motherhouse in Fremont, CA and at the Dominican Youth Movement Conference in Adrian, Michigan. Members of Veritas help promote a positive spirit, Christian values, build the spiritual community at Mission, exemplify moral leadership and help promote our MSJ Dominican charism. They also participate in liturgy planning, music ministry, and outreach to those in need.
