Seton Hill Volunteers in the Community
Seton Hill University hosted the annual Labor of Love on Saturday, September 10. Lead by Sister Maureen O’Brien, S.C., director of Campus Ministry, the day of service began at 8 a.m. with a continental breakfast for more than 100 volunteers. Seton Hill faculty, staff, students, alumni and members of the Board of Trustees volunteered at the nine worksites, including Caritas Christi, Christian Layman Store, Greater Parkview Church, Powdermill Nature Reserve, Seton Hill Grotto, Saint Emma’s Monastery, Saint Vincent de Paul Store, Welcome Home Shelter and YMCA of Greensburg.
Sister Maureen noted that serving those in need and providing community service is the foundation of the Seton Hill mission. “These ideals are embedded in the roots Elizabeth Ann Seton fostered,” O’Brien stated. “Within our mission statement we see our goals and our commitment to serve and give. This is what Seton Hill is based upon.”
Labor of Love, Saturday of Service is a Seton Hill tradition of beginning the academic year with a day of community service that brings together new and returning students, faculty, and staff together.
