SOUTH BEND — Over 400 students spent their Sunday morning helping others through the annual Work for Saint Joe community outreach program.

Every year Saint Joseph High School students, faculty and parents gather for a day of service to our community called Work for Saint Joe. Students work in teams with adult chaperones to rake leaves and do other yard work for those unable to do so for themselves. This is always a fun day of hard work through which the Saint Joe community is able to reach out to the South Bend community. Students enjoy providing this very tangible, visible sign of their love for their neighbors.

The day began with Mass in the main gym. Afterwards, families went out into the community at 9 a.m. to rake leaves, clean yards and help neighbors. The event concluded with a pizza lunch in the Leep Family Dining Hall.
