Past Events

Service Program Information Night

On January 10, Adam Baber, the Director of Service and Justice held an information session regarding the service requirement at McQuaid Jesuit. Topics covered included what is required at each grade level, how students report their hours, service immersion opportunities, and the senior capstone project.

If you were not able to attend, you may find Mr. Baber’s presentation here as well as an updated list of service opportunities and partner organizations here.

Our Brothers’ Closet

The Parents’ Association (PA) is very appreciative of all the donations of gently used clothing to Our Brothers’ Closet. Run by the PA, Our Brothers’ Closet is the place where we house gently used clothing donations that could be used for dress code, such as shirts, pants, suitcoats, as well as McQuaid Spirit Wear that students are able to wear on dress down days. The closet is available to any student at any time who may need assistance in sourcing attire due to financial restraints. A few times a year the PA also hosts Annual Garment Sales, where items in Our Brothers’ Closet are available for sale at discounted rates. ($15 jackets, $5 shirts, pants, shorts, $2 belts, $2 ties). All proceeds of our Garment Sales help the Parent Association to host events throughout the year that gather the McQuaid community.

Thank you to all who supported our August and December sales! If you are interested in volunteering to help setup and work these sales, or donate your time assisting with the maintenance of the closet at a time that is convenient for you – please contact pa@mcquaid.org – we would love to have you join us!

Our Brothers’ Closet is located in Room 230 across from the Counseling Offices. Clothing donations may be dropped off to the front office during school hours between 7:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., Monday – Friday. You may contact pa@mcquaid.org, or Megan Brady at 585-256-6102 with any questions.
