RJ Day for Others

About Day for Others

RJ Day for Others is designed to bring the multiple facets of the community of Regis Jesuit High School—students, alumni, parents, faculty, friends—together in the shared experience of prayer and service to the people of God in the Denver area.

Students who participate in Day for Others, regardless of grade level, receive credit for hours served as part of the event. The direct service requirement for juniors and seniors is waived for participation in Day for Others only.

More than 1000 people joined us for the fifth annual event on September 10, 2016—the largest service event ever sponsored by the school in its history!

Thanks to all who served as team leaders, who brought peanut butter and jelly for the Peanut Butter Project, who brought food for breakfast and sides for lunch, who helped with the commissioning and prayer services, and Greg Puhr, Bill Pieseski, Joe Wilson and Jim Butler who grilled up the brats as part of a fabulous feast for the hungry troops who will serve. And a special thanks to Helen Reed, who graciously lets us use the GD cafeteria kitchen for this event each year.
