THE UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME
MARCHING BAND

VISITS METRO CATHOLIC SCHOOL

University of Notre Dame Band marches into hearts of Metro Catholic students

Students at Metro Catholic School in Cleveland had reason to “cheer, cheer for old Notre Dame” this week as 50 members of The University of Notre Dame’s Marching Band stopped by both of the school’s campuses during the group’s fall service trip.

The band members presented a short concert of Notre Dame Fan favorites, including “1812,” “Rakes of Mallow,” “Notre Dame, Our Mother” and the “Notre Dame Victory March,” then allowed students an up-close look at the instruments.

Following the concert at the Boniface campus on West 54thStreet and Denison Avenue, the fighting Irish musicians got down to work painting hop scotch and other playground games on the parking lot. Other students pulled weeds and planted flowers.

The student-led trip found Metro Catholic after doing a Google search for Catholic schools in Cleveland. After visiting the school’s website, trip organizers said they knew they had to visit.

Sam Miller, a student organizer said that she “picked Metro Catholic because I really wanted to serve Catholic schools because I have been greatly influenced by my Catholic education, and both of my parents are Catholic school teachers in the Archdiocese of Washington.” Miller, a trumpet player, also is studying to be a teacher.

Many members of the band have been coming on the service trip for years. “I love the idea of taking the gift of band and the gift to time and being able to donate to others with my friends,” said senior piccolo player Annie Hill.

“This is an opportunity to do something different. It’s about meeting people and getting involved in their community. We can get a lot done while we’re here,” said Daniel Griffin, a junior who plays the trumpet.

In addition to their stop at Metro Catholic, the group took time to serve at Laura's Home, Drink Local. Drink Tap., MedWish International, the Greater Cleveland Food Bank and Green Corps.

After completing their service projects in Cleveland, the group will board its bus and head back to South Bend, Indiana. The Irish take on that “team up North” this weekend and it’s likely there will be a few more younger viewers watching and hoping to see their new-found friends.

GO IRISH!!

When we say CONNECT we mean ~
take the time to get to know others.
This means listening to them,
reaching out to them in word or deed,
learning about their needs and concerns,
understanding the culture/faith/family
from which they come.

When we say RESPECT we mean ~
recognize the Christ that is within others. 
This means we speak and act
in ways that celebrate and honor the
inherent dignity of the person or group.

When we say PROTECT we mean ~
watch out for others so that
they are safe in all ways. 
This means we watch out for bullying
and speak up,
we build on the connections we have made
to not make judgements
about entire groups,
and we act as the hands of God
to shelter those who are in need.
