Franciscan Servant Scholars participate in Make a Difference Day
On Saturday, November 9, members of Stritch's Franciscan Servant Scholars joined with other students, faculty and staff members from local colleges and universities to perform a variety of service activities.
Under the direction of FSS coordinator Monica Veitch, 11 Stritch students worked at two area residences of senior neighbors, cleaning out yards on a cold and snowy day.
Before the group began its work, they prayed for strength and compassion and that they would allow God to help us serve Him with joy and be a light for others to witness.
"I was so very proud of these Stritch students," said Veitch. "Their hard work, joyful service and willingness to give up a Saturday to make a difference and help those in need was inspiring!"
