Cabrini Service & Mission ExpoRepresentatives of more than 20 non-profit organizations gathered at Cabrini for the Annual Service Mission Expo. The Expo is designed to introduce and familiarize Cabrini students to the various and diverse opportunities available to them to complete their service hour requirements.
