called “Sacred Suds
“, the campus chaplain engages students each Sunday afternoon at the Quick Wash on San Carlos Street
offering to pay for laundry with no strings attached. The most significant part of the exchange happens when the chaplain offers a pin with the hashtag #IBIY – I Believe in You. Students receive the little pin often with emotion indicating how much these young people need to hear those words. It is actually sacramental and heart to heart.
