Civic Engagement

“In appreciating our neighbor, we’re participating in something truly sacred.” —Fred Rogers, aka the incomparable Mister Rogers

The world’s religious and spiritual traditions share a commitment to compassion to our neighbors and to all living things, but you don’t have to be part of anything religious per se to get involved in great community service events. You’ll find stuff here that invites engagement in service both in our immediate neighborhoods and more widely in the city of Chicago. Big picture: this isn’t just about you (or your high school resumé), but about what it means to experience connection and to reflect with others on the significance of working for a more just and peaceful world.
