Mercy and Mission Week

Join us the week of September 16-22 for a campus wide celebration of the Mercy Tradition that informs who we are and guides our mission.

Week-Long Service Project:
Mission and Ministry is leading a donation drive to help the Catherine McAuley Center ensure that those they serve have all the basics from the moment they arrive. Drop off personal care items any time this week in the Campus Ministry Lounge. Personal care items needed by the Catherine McAuley Center are:

  • Deodorant
  • Shampoo and Conditioner
  • Shower Gel/Body Wash/Bars of Soap
  • Toothpaste
  • Hand Lotion
  • Hairbrushes and Hair Ties (new)
