Brian Gallagher was in Rome last week to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with Scholas Occurrentes, an education initiative started by Pope Francis while he was Bishop of Buenos Aires.
It is fitting that the day after the National Day of Service and Remembrance we will celebrate the power of volunteering in a wholly different way. September 12, 2014 marks the 20th anniversary of AmeriCorps, a strength of the volunteer movement in the United States.
9/11/14 marks the 13th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. It is a day to remember and honor those who were lost, their families and the toll it took on all of us. It is the National Day of Service and Remembrance. I hope you will join millions of others on this day who are choosing to honor and remember through volunteer service.
