Meet the Mission is organized and sponsored by the Office of Mission and Ministry, under the leadership of Sr. Walter Maher, and is held every September. This year will mark the eleventh anniversary of the University of the Incarnate Word's first Meet the Mission Day, founded by Professor Emeritus Harold Rodinsky.

On Meet the Mission Day, University of the Incarnate Word students and employees engage the greater San Antonio community with service.  In the decade since its origin, the event has grown to see over 200 members of the University of the Incarnate Word community deploy to over 20 Community Partner sites to perform service projects on a single day.

This year, the 12th annual Meet the Mission Day will take place on Friday, September 15th, 2017, and we will start and end the day at the McDermott Convocation Center.  Meet the Mission Day volunteers will deploy in two waves:

  • First Wave
    • 7:30 - 8:00 Breakfast and prayer
    • 8:00 - 9:00 Transport to Community Partner service site
    • 9:00 - 12:00 Perform service with Community Partners
    • 12:00 - 1:00 Transport back to University of the Incarnate Word campus
    • 1:00 - 2:00 Lunch and reflection
  • Second Wave
    • 9:00 - 9:30 Breakfast and prayer
    • 9:30 - 10:30 Transport to Community Partner service site
    • 10:30 - 1:30 Perform service with Community Partners
    • 1:30 - 2:30 Transport back to University of the Incarnate Word campus
    • 2:30 - 3:30 Lunch and reflection

 

The success of the project depends on Community Partners, University of the Incarnate Word employees, and University of the Incarnate Word students.  To find out more about how you or your organization can get involved, please visit the appropriate information page:
