The start of the new year always calls for new service opportunities. This January, students partook in various volunteer opportunities, and I asked Mr. Riemer, head of the Service Department, some questions about these events. 1.) What volunteer activities took place in January? "We have numerous regular opportunities that we resumed after returning from the Christmas break, most notably Manna for...
On February 18th and several days following, eight Jesuit Dallas juniors embarked on a mission and experienced things that most people won't experience otherwise. These juniors traveled to Waco, Texas to participate in a poverty simulation with a local organization.

Community service proves to be an excellent way for a Jesuit student to work towards his status as a Man for Others, and various kinds of community service...
The trip where students are forced to carry 49 pounds of (medical) drugs through foreign airports. Where students spend hours driving up and down one-lane roads on the sides of mountains, fearing each bump as if the truck is going to tip over.
