Action Plans by College

"We, the preachers"

Aquinas College

We, the preachers of Aquinas College, will preach with our lives by:

1. Sharing our service opportunities with our student peer minister coordinator of service, Faith Addington, and telling her about the blessing of the hands beforehand, the discernment process, and connecting to other departments, including professors and the Insignis honors program to raise awareness.

2. Bring a chapter of the Dominican Youth program to campus and beginning that as a small group. Talking to Sister Katherine Frazier and Sister Mary Ann Barrett, with the main goal of having it run by students.

3. Tours of Marywood (inspired by the Marywood Service project) and establishing better sister connections to offer role models and advice to the entire community.
