The 7th Annual Saint Meinrad Day of Service will be held Saturday, March 14, 2020.
What is the Saint Meinrad Day of Service?
The Alumni Association Board of Directors, in collaboration with the Alumni Office, started the Saint Meinrad Day of Service in an effort to develop more creative ways for alumni to live out the mission of Saint Meinrad in their communities with their fellow classmates and friends.
For over 50 years, students at Saint Meinrad have volunteered in various capacities through the Cooperative Action for Community Development (CACD) program.
The Saint Meinrad Day of Service is an opportunity for our alumni and friends to continue this tradition of service – a chance to pray together, socialize together, and encourage one another in order to strengthen their local communities and the Body of Christ.
The seventh annual Saint Meinrad Day of Service will be held Saturday, March 14, 2020, with the goal that alumni and friends of Saint Meinrad around the country will come together to serve their communities.
Whether the project is big or small, at the local Catholic parish or in partnership with a local agency, it is an opportunity to make known the importance of service in the life and legacy of those connected with Saint Meinrad.
Who is involved in the Saint Meinrad Day of Service?
The Saint Meinrad Day of Service is open to anyone connected to Saint Meinrad, not just alumni. Service projects are regionally based. If there is one happening in your area, the local site coordinator and the Alumni Office will be in touch with you to encourage your participation. Every service project is open to anyone connected to Saint Meinrad in any way.
What should I do if I want to organize a project for the Saint Meinrad Day of Service?
Those who organize projects are called site coordinators. The first step is to download the site coordinator’s toolkit to learn a little more about organizing a project.
