The program, sponsored by National Geographic Society, National Geographic Education, Mississippi River Cities and Towns Initiative, UN Environment Programme North America, Marine Debris Tracker and the University of Georgia, uses the open-source “Marine Debris Tracker” mobile app to collect data about the waste stream from inland to the ocean.

    Jennifer Wendt presented findings from when our students tagged and picked up trash along the Mississippi River. The Angels had the opportunity to ask questions to learn about their impact and how they can be the force for positive changes in our community.

  • Seniors Serve the “Dear Neighbor”

    Members of the Class of 2021 served the “Dear Neighbor” through special service projects and volunteer roles. One group is participating in the “Service of the Heart: Virtual Immersion Service Experience” with the Br. David Darst Center of Chicago. By exploring issues of peace and justice through the lens of Catholic Social Teaching, the center provides transformative urban immersion experiences and educational programs. 

    The Angels enjoyed connecting with a representative from Growing Home Inc, an organization that addresses food insecurity in Chicago. Her dedication and passion for her work for the “Dear Neighbor” reflects the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet Charism of “right relationship.” She encouraged the seniors to become ambassadors for service work around the St. Louis area.
