MADISON -- The St. Ambrose Academy Fall 2019 Service Day took the school's junior and senior high students out into the community to serve at 17 different community organizations, parishes, and schools.

After several weeks of coordination, the student leadership team guided their peers from the start of the day to the end of the service projects. Having older students matched up at service sites with young students is one of many ways that the entire student body of 112 students can come together across the span of grades to build a strong culture of service and love for one's neighbor.

Community partners this fall included several local Catholic schools such as St. Peter in Ashton, St. John the Baptist in Waunakee, and Immaculate Heart of Mary in Monona. Student groups also participated in projects at the Catholic Multicultural Center, Second Harvest Foodbank, Camp Gray, Waunakee Neighborhood Connection, All Saints Memory Care, Resurrection Cemetery, and many others.
