Charity Week, The Sweet That Speaks   Oct. 17 - 23

One of the University of Dallas' many traditions is Charity Week. Led by the Junior class, Charity Week occurs during the fall semester and involves several student-run events, booths and activities that gather the entire campus together to raise money for charity.

Responsible for organizing and managing all aspects of the week, the Junior class has the opportunity to reunite after many of them spent their last year apart, experiencing their Rome semesters in the fall or spring of the previous year. Charity Week offers a chance for leadership, community, and giving that is organized by the Juniors and reaches all of the students, faculty, and staff.

This year UD will be supporting two fantastic charities, Abel Speaks and Scotty's House. With this year's theme being Candy Land, we are anticipating a sweet, delicious week of charity and community. If you are interested in donating to Charity Week this year, please reach out to mbrown@udallas.edu by Oct. 22. 

Seven Churches Pilgrimage   Oct. 30

An opportunity that your student will have later this month is to attend UD's first Seven Churches Pilgrimage in Irving, Texas. A recreation of pilgrimage in Rome, the Seven Churches was popularized in the 16th century by St. Philip Neri and is now led in Lent by seminarians at the North American College. We hope that an Irving version of it will be a time for prayer and also a time for friendly conversations between UD students and faculty. This event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 30, beginning with an 8 a.m. Mass at the Cistercian Abbey, followed by three churches on campus (the Dominican Priory, Holy Trinity Seminary, and the Church of the Incarnation) before traveling south to St. Luke's, St. Basil's, and then Mater Dei, all here in Irving. 

The Big Event   Nov. 6

UD is excited to host its first (and we hope annual) Big Event, an opportunity for students, faculty, staff, and alumni to join in a day of service focused on meeting the needs of Irving. All volunteers will be grouped together and assigned to a household in Irving, where they will spend the day serving UD neighbors through outdoor work — anything from painting to weeding. The university will be checking all job sites before the day of service to ensure the safety of all volunteers. To learn more about The Big Event or to see updates, you can follow their Instagram page @bigeventud.
