In honor of the 200th anniversary of the day St. Philippine Duchesne opened the first Sacred Heart school in North America, we are pleased to join the worldwide family of Sacred Heart for a Global Service Day.

Who: The entire Sacred Heart community.

What: Join the international family of the Sacred Heart to honor St. Philippine with a day of service in her name.

Join the Convent & Stuart Hall community for a day of action! Global Service Day coincides with California Coastal Cleanup Day, the state's largest annual volunteer event. As stewards of our oceans, local beaches and waterways, it is our responsibility to help protect them. 

Where: Meet at the intersection of Thomas and Griffith Streets near the Yosemite North Slough, located within the Candlestick Point State Recreation Area in southeastern San Francisco. There is plenty of parking at the site. View map

What to bring: Please bring the following items with you on Global Service Day:

  • a five-gallon bucket
  • sturdy work gloves
  • water and sunscreen
  • wear "shades of blue" shirts in honor of the ocean
  • appropriate shoes

Required waivers: There are two waivers that must be signed in order to participate. 

  • Please complete a school waiver before participating in Global Service Day. 
  • Please arrive at the cleanup site on September 15 at 9 a.m. with a parent/guardian signed Coastal Cleanup Day waiver .
  • If your child is going to the event with another family, please ensure that they bring a parent/guardian signed waiver.

“Learn to let others do their share of the work. Things may be done less well, but you will have more peace of soul and health of body. And what temporal interest should we not sacrifice in order to gain these blessings?”
