This year’s Spirit Day, held by the Saints Production Board, is scheduled for Friday, September 22, 2017, starting with a Mass at 11 a.m. in the Sacred Heart Chapel; the Mass is then followed by a festival in the Mall Area.
Every year, the OLLU community celebrates its Christian heritage. University organizations set up different booths and tables, each sponsoring different food, games and activities that are free for everyone, but they all share one goal—to honor and celebrate the Holy Spirit. During the Mass, the university will ask the Holy Spirit to bless this academic year and bless each student attending OLLU. OLLU Senior and SGA President Alexa Aguirre explains it further. “Spirit day not only to showcase the spirit of the school and to commemorate it, but to share the Holy Spirit with each other.”
This Year’s theme “Fearless,” ties in with that thought says Aguirre. “It represents the act of being fearless in the face of adversity,” said Aguirre, “It represents being fearless in the Spirit and with the Holy Spirit you can be fearless in everything.”
The festival will feature food, games and various activities, all free of charge. The SPB is also hosting a competition with a prize awarded to the best table.
Spirit Day themed shirt sells for $10.
