FAMILY SUMMER SOCIAL IMPACT BINGO CHALLENGE!

Hello SUA families! We hope you will join us in a specially designed social impact Bingo game. Via this LINK you will find 25 options to make an impact in the final weeks of Summer. Send us updates about your progress!

Planning ahead:

Community Partners Update and Outreach: Please click HERE for an article about HOPE Emergency, a non-profit organization founded in 1975 by the Brown County Ursuline Sisters. It showcases the changes to their ministry due to COVID-19.

Like HOPE Emergency, the Saint Ursula Academy Community Service Learning office plans to continue the relationships we have established with all of our outreach organizations and will resume student, in-person volunteer work once the pandemic has ended. Until then, we too will modify how we support all of the social service organizations we partner with during the school year by educating and empowering our young women to learn and advocate in new ways. Through it all, we stay focused on St. Angela’s wise words: “With God’s help, you will do much good for others.” Many of our projects will need the support of parents, so please stay tuned to an email from Rachel Kemper if you would like to learn more.

Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice will be held VIRTUALLY from October 19-26: We are currently recruiting students interested in attending the annual Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice (IFTJ). Normally this event is held in Washington D.C., but this year it will be virtual. However, the group who participates locally will meet in person in Cincinnati regularly. IFTJ is an opportunity for students to be empowered, inspired, challenged, and supported by a community that sees faith and justice integrally linked. Attendees will virtually interact with students from Catholic institutions from all over the United States while hearing an amazing group of speakers on issues of social justice and advocacy. They will be coached in the art of presenting an "ask" to elected representatives, and then conclude the conference by heading to Cincinnati based offices to meet with their members of Congress to present their own "asks" on issues of justice. Students can use this LINK if interested and more details will be e-mailed to them. More information about this event via this link: https://ignatiansolidarity.net/iftj/
