Organized and sponsored by the Office of Mission and Ministry, under the leadership of Sr. Walter Maher, CCVI, Meet the Mission was held on Sept. 18. This year marked the 10th anniversary of UIW’s first Meet the Mission Day, founded by former Professor Harold Rodinsky.
On the day of the event, UIW students and employees engaged the greater San Antonio community with service to nearly 30 organizations, such as the Salvation Army, Animal Defense League, The Village at Incarnate Word, the Headwaters at Incarnate Word, and the Boys and Girls Club, among others.
Since its origin, the event has grown in participation to over 200 members of the UIW community deployed to over 20 community partner sites to perform service projects on a single day. This year, the 10th annual Meet the Mission commemorated Rodinsky’s establishment of the annual day of service.
