Serving Others: An Ursuline Value
In 1535, Angela Merici, a woman in her 60s, began a new endeavor. she founded a group of women, some older, some younger, called the Company of St. Ursula. Their mission was to spread the Gospel message into the homes and hearts of their neighborhoods. They lived among their neighbors and responded to their needs–teaching, counseling, opening schools, and orphanages.
In response to our Ursuline roots, the Chatfield Chatfield Student Service Club (CSSC) focuses on serving the student body as well as the surrounding community. The service club is open to any student, as well as faculty and staff.
The service club is offered at each campus. The club has responded to the needs of the community in the following ways:
- Assist at local food pantries
- Collect clothing
- Support families in need during Christmas with gifts
- Participate in Fall Frolic and assist in school repairs
- Blood drives
- Operation Christmas Child
