At its core, St. Kate's is about reaching out to the marginalized, giving back to our community, and living out the tenets of Catholic social teaching. Citizen Katie brings together the St. Kate's family in service to our communities.
Citizen Katie is a semi-annual event, taking place in October and April each year.
Volunteers gather on campus for a hearty breakfast before heading out to work sites around the Twin Cities. Parking on campus is free, and transportation to work sites is provided. Volunteers may also meet their work groups at their chosen site.
A Citizen Katie t-shirt is provided for each volunteer. Those who have participated in Citizen Katie in the past and already have a t-shirt are asked to wear the shirt received previously.
Each fall, alumnae/i chapters plan gatherings to support Citizen Katie in their own communities. For help in planning a service project for Katies in your hometown, contact Kelly Povo '09, chapter manager, at 651-690-6063 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students are welcome at these Twin Cities Chapter service projects! Transportation from campus is not provided, however, carpools may be arranged for students who need a ride to their volunteer site.
