Johnnies - interested in doing a little service around campus? Put the Benedictine value ora et labora (prayer and work) into action this spring! Saint John's Campus Ministry and Saint John's Abbey are partnering to host the Prayer & Work Service Series. On select Saturday mornings from 9:00-11:00 a.m., a small group of Johnnies will work with members of the monastic community to beautify our campus. Projects may include doing trail repairs, garden work, helping with construction, etc. We'll begin and end our service work in prayer.
Spots are limited. Grab your buddies and register today!
