We set aside Nov. 11 of each year to reflect on the military service that brave men and women have given to our country. This is a day to remember and honor the sacrifice those Americans have given, some being the ultimate sacrifice.
The goal of the Ignatian Service Office is to provide opportunities for our students to become "Men for Others". St. Ignatius believed that students of Jesuit education must be formed not only intellectually, but also spiritually and culturally. Service is the "school of the heart" that allows our students to move beyond themselves and work for God's greater glory on earth.
Students, alumni, and interested adults are invited to join us one Saturday a month as we pack food boxes for senior citizens at the Focus:Hope Warehouse and then deliver the boxes to 60 seniors at Warren Apartments.
We meet at 8am in the school's Atrium. The bus leaves at 8:45 am. We should return to U of D Jesuit by noon. All students are required to complete the 2018-19 permission form, which is good for the entire school year. Click here for the 2018-19 Permission Form.
