MISSION COLLECTION: Is asking all students to spare a few dollars in donations to the Labre Fund. Labre is a focal point of how St. Ignatius men should live and if you haven't gone on a Labre Mission yet, consider giving some money to our homeless brothers and sisters, especially in this winter season, to help keep them all warm. During these winter months, Labre is running especially low on desperately needed items that help those living on the streets in the frigid Cleveland weather. Funds raised will go towards purchasing sweatshirts, gloves, and batteries for our friends on the street. Please consider visiting a member of the Mission collection during lunch and formation periods, donating cash during advisories.
