Summer Service 2024


SNJM Shared Mission (July 21-27):

Holy Names students will gather in Wapato, Washington with other SNJM-sponsored schools to participate in a week-long service-learning experience. We will also visit the Yakama National Museum and Cultural Center. Food and Housing will be provided by Campbell Farm and each day, students will serve at local non-profits where Sisters and Associates have served for decades.

Agape Service Project (July 7-11): 

A group of rising 9th, 10th, and 11th -grade students will travel to Whatcom County to participate in a week-long service-learning experience called the Agape Service Project, sponsored through the Seattle Archdiocese. Students learn about human dignity, issues affecting migrant farmworkers, and why we are called to serve. Participants will volunteer at a food bank and spend time with migrant families. See this flyer and contact Julie Tilghman (jtilghman@holynames-sea.org) for more information.
