Spring Into Action is a one-day event that occurs each spring as part of the national Jesuit Day of Service. Students, families, faculty, staff and friends of Saint Ignatius High School, plus Ohio City neighbors gather to renew and refresh the neighborhoods of the near West Side of Cleveland through a variety of Christian service projects and sites. Previous projects have included home renovation, graffiti abatement, tending to community and home gardens and making area homes safer for sustainable living environments.
The 2019 Spring Into Action will be on Saturday, April 27, 2019. We begin with a short reflection service in St. Mary's Chapel, followed by a light breakfast, then service at sites throughout our community. Things wrap up with a cookout lunch around noon. Please feel free to invite friends, family, and others to join us!
