Loyola students may fulfill their Christian Service Program (CSP) requirement at Dominus Vobiscum. Secondary IV students are brought to DV in the fall, spring, and summer (Secondary V credit).

The students gain experience living in a community as they serve. They are expected to participate in the spiritual, social, and recreational activities of the retreat centre.
