About CTH
Continuing the Heritage Day of Service Event (CTH) is a University-wide service project that takes place at the beginning of the fall semester and during Lent as part of "40 Days of Service." The event is sponsored and organized by the Office of Community Engagement and the Marianist Leadership Program. Traditionally, more than 700 St. Mary’s volunteers come together to give more than 3,000 hours of service in the community.

Each year, students, faculty, staff and alumni come out in droves to volunteer for community projects around San Antonio. They lend their time and talent to paint houses for the elderly in the St. Mary’s neighborhood area, work in community gardens, serve food to the homeless at Haven for Hope, paint playgrounds at Head Start locations, remove graffiti and more.

Since 2003, nearly 7,500 volunteers have offered approximately 41,000 hours to organizations providing much-needed service throughout San Antonio.

Previous partners have included Ronald McDonald House, Habitat for Humanity, Guadalupe Home, Catholic Charities, Roy Maas Alternative Thrift Store, Grace Place for Alzheimer's, St. Mary’s Legal and Social Justice Center, Roots of Change Community Garden, CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Children’s Hospital, and many more.
