News Coverage of Jesuit Senior Service

Every Wednesday, the Jesuit senior class disperses throughout the area to serve the community: from homeless shelters to hospitals, from schools to soup kitchens; the choices are innumerable. One group of musicians travels to retirement homes just to make music. But is musical performance really service? What is service? According to Merriam-Webster, service is simply a helpful act - an...
Shining lights, good food, better dance moves all come together in one room. Pausing momentarily to laugh with joy at the sight of the room of dancing students, one young person then quickly resumes his rendition of the macarena, rejoining the festivities. On December 9th, Jesuit and Ursuline students helped to host the 9th annual Notre Dame Christmas dance. About 50...
“Men for Others.” That’s what you commonly hear when you think about Jesuit and what you hear during prayer services. But what you probably don’t know is the full extent of the maxim, and what it means exactly.

Mr. Rich Perry says that he was “thrilled” with this years games held on May 8 and that it was the “most well executed, planned games has ever had.” He added, “The seniors were amazing,” and they “owned ...
Empathy is a theme that has been emphasized at Jesuit this year, and a push for empathy between teachers and students seems to have been an effect of that. Two weeks ago, the faculty built empathy with seniors by visiting their service sites for a few hours. Instead of attending morning classes, each Wednesday seniors leave campus to serve the...
Every Wednesday, the senior parking lot jumps to life as the seniors hop into their cars and travel near and far to commit acts of selflessness. The students venture off to several service sites to assist, serve and support several separate communities within our own. One service site in particular attracted a multitude of the Class of 2017's members. Roughly 10%...
