In preparation for Lent, the Clarke College Campus Ministry Office will host a spiritual reading used-book sale on Wednesday, Feb. 22, and Thursday, Feb. 23, on the Clarke campus. The sale will be held from 8 a.m.-9 p.m. each day in Clarke’s Atrium Conference Room. The event is open to the public and all are encouraged to attend.
Free-will offerings for the books will be used to fund the campus ministry office’s New Orleans Service Trip, as well as retreats and other outreach service programs.
This January, a team of eight students and three staff members made the 18-hour trip to New Orleans to assist Catholic Charities of New Orleans with the clean-up efforts in areas ravaged by Hurricane Katrina. The team completely gutted three homes in five days – with nothing remaining except the studs and concrete foundation. Another Clarke team will return in April to again help with debris removal.
