The day will begin with a prayer service and breakfast at the school. Then, the groups will be split up and bused to their particular worksites. The day will conclude with a reflection gathering back at Iona Prep. The moderator of “Make A Difference Day” is Anthony Casella ’97, Iona Prep’s director of campus ministry, along with Fr. Jay Horan from Salesian (coordinator of youth ministry), Edward Sullivan from Blessed Sacrament (principal), and Sr. Pat Schifini from Ursuline (director of campus ministry).
