The organization’s Constitution states: “The purpose of COR is to provide opportunities to develop spiritual and religious maturity; to open avenues for transforming the heart, mind and soul of each individual according to his or her own creed; and to empower our student body to become agents of change and service to our community and society. Although COR is a Christian-inspired organization, it welcomes all members of the University community, regardless of religious background, and supports them in their own spiritual journey. Membership in this organization is open to all students at Marymount who are interested in developing their spiritual growth, expanding their knowledge of religion and serving others.”
COR sponsors an annual Leadership Retreat at the beginning of the fall semester to build relationships, develop goals and plan events. Take a look at the photos from the fall 2013 Big Bear "Come As You Are" retreat here.
Throughout the year, the group helps students discover and deepen their spirituality. In the past members have planned:
- Friday "prayer lunches"
- Clothing and canned food drives
- “Support the Troops” events
- Discussion groups
- “Spiritual Hikes” to Temescal Canyon
- Fund-raising events for local and global needs, such Haiti earthquake relief
COR works with other service groups on campus and assists Campus Ministry with its programs.
