On Tuesday February 27, 2018, members of the Class of 2020 participated in IHA’s annual Sophomore Day of Service. Speakers from various non-profits visited the school to share their journey and information about whom their organization serves. Our girls were challenged to think about the large scale social injustices that face those served by these organizations and how we, as Catholics, are called to oppose them.
We were pleased to welcome:
Dan Kearns, President of Society of St. Vincent De Paul in Glen Allen, Virginia. Our students made rosaries to be brought on home visits.
Thaddeus Orlowski of Camp Acorn in Allendale. Students made cards for campers to brighten their day.
Justin Carracco, a member of the volunteer staff for Nazareth Farm in Salem, West Virginia. Members of the Class of 2020 made thank you cards for Nazareth Farm donors.
Jennifer Edwards, founder of the Sullivan County Pregnancy Support Center in Liberty, New York. Students made baby onsie and socks cupcakes for the mothers at the center.
