Christian Outreach Work Day
On Thursday, November 1, the student leadership ministry, Christian Outreach, committed to a day of service. A total of 10 students and two faculty members met at the Savio parking lot and started their day at 4:15 AM. They traveled together to serve breakfast to the homeless at "Feed My People" in the First United Methodist Church in downtown Austin. The students were able to attend Mass at 6:30 AM at St. Mary's Cathedral after serving breakfast.
A group of students have committed to attend "Feed My People" every Thursday but, Christian Outreach decided to assist and extend their service to help with set up of the Foundation for the Homeless, the Spirit of Compassion fundraiser.
