INDIANAPOLIS - Wednesday night, members of the Marian University football team traded in their workout gear and cleats for a pair of gloves and an apron, as the Knights took time to give back to the community, serving food at the St. Vincent House. 

The 14 members of the team that participated took a tour of the 20-room house prior to serving food, seeing the new facilities, bedrooms, and playrooms the house has to offer for its guests. This was a great learning experience for the team, and all were humbled to be able to give back. The volunteer time gave the group a better opportunity to bond off the field as they get ready to report for the upcoming season. 

"We have a lot of guys that are able to stay around campus this summer, and it's good to see that they wanted to come back and give back to the community," said coach Michael Ridings.

"We talk about being a Knight, and that represents a lot of things. Giving back to the community, Coach (Mark) Henninger is a big on that, and our guys are doing a great job of that tonight."

The St. Vincent House is a 20-room house that provides a home away from home for families of patients who are receiving care at St. Vincent. As a type of retreat, the facility is designed to convey a sense of peace and rest, a place for emotional and spiritual refreshment, and a place where a family can just be a family.
