Faculty and Staff Spend The Day Together Doing Community Service Work
Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Today, the entire faculty and staff spent the morning giving back to the community while at the same time coming closer together as a faculty and staff. Some of the staff headed to City Park to celebrate Earth Day by clearing pathways, mulching around newly planted trees, and painting benches. Others went to the Lazarus House. The mission of Project Lazarus is to help heal and empower people living with HIV/AIDS by focusing on wellness, providing housing and offering important support services. Last but not least, the remaining faculty and staff went to Chateau de Notre Dame which is owned by the Archdiocese of New Orleans and is the only faith-based retirement community in New Orleans that offers a continuum of care including independent living apartments, assisted living apartments, skilled nursing care, and rehabilitation services. It was an awesome day for the faculty and staff, but more importantly, it was a way for the faculty and staff to carry out the mission of the Holy Cross congregation. Click here to view Photos
