Welcome to the new and revised page for the Senior Alumni Group!
Our goal or charter is to encourage Senior Alumni involvement and foster participation in activities directed toward the Senior population.
Tenets of Action
We will seek to engage and encourage activities under the auspices of Service, Faith Formation, and Camaraderie.
- Volunteerism and Volunteer Activities
- Community Masses
- Study Groups
- Game Watches
Under the Service pillar or goal we will continue our long-standing commitment to Our Lady of the Angels Mission, run by Father Bob Lombardo (ND Class of 1979) and the Franciscan Sisters. See the wonderful picture above of Senior Alums in action at the Mission. They need assistance at Community Dinners, at which we can help with set-up, food preparation, meal service, and cleanup. The Mission is located at 3808 W Iowa St. in Chicago. Volunteers can help with preparation from about 4 PM to 6 PM and/or meal service and cleanup from about 6 PM to 8 PM. The latter shift is the busier one. And we can assist the Mission’s Mobile Food Pantries, which are held the first Saturday of each month, where dozens of needy neighbors are provided food donations. More information is on the Mission’s web site at http://www.missionola.com.
The most recent issue of The Golden Domer can still be found at: http://ndsa.undgroup.org/s/1210/clubs-interior-2col.aspx?sid=1210&gid=561&pgid=12325
Please keep us informed of your ideas and ways to meet our objectives. We are especially interested in knowing of places in fairly central locations where we can have informal meetings and networking.
The Senior Alums will have a social gathering on Wed June 6, 2018 at 200 North Lasalle St, from 4:30 to 7 PM. We will also sponsor and staff the Block Party at Our Lady of the Angels Mission (see their website link above) on Saturday June 16. See the events portion of the Club’s website for more details, or contact Jim Hynan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
