The pandemic has escalated the need for service globally and in our community. We continue to commit ourselves to be informed, be compassionate and respond as the Gospel teaches us. Campus Ministry is creating SMASH kits (Salpointe Makes Service Happen) that students can check out on a library system. These kits will allow students to participate and respond to the needs of our community from home. Incorporating the corporal and spiritual works of mercy, these kits include making masks and blankets for vulnerable persons, creating strength bracelets for Beads of Courage, weaving plarn mats, writing letters, glazing Ben's Bells tiles and more. In addition to the kits, students are provided with a list of ideas for what they can do from home in the spirit of Catholic social justice and the works of mercy.
