Heritage Day

September 21, 2022

Serving the community is a central tenet of Moravian tradition and hence of our college’s foundation. Established by President Grigsby, Heritage Day is a celebration of Moravian tradition, community, and service. To honor our history and put in practice that commitment to service, we held our first Heritage Day on September 21, 2016. Now, each year, we dedicate a warm September day to learning about the founders of Moravian University and our cultural heritage, as well as serving our community.

Please join us Wednesday, September 21st for our 6th annual celebration!

Be Prepared

Help us have a successful day! Please feel free to bring your own reusable water bottle and a snack. Dress appropriately for service—consider wearing clothes that you wouldn’t mind if they got dirty, muddy, or paint drips. You must wear closed toe shoes, sneakers are best! No flip flops or sandals are permitted on any service site. If you are outside, bug spray and sunscreen will be provided. If you have a preferred brand of these supplies, please feel free to bring your own.
