By putting their faith in action, students apply what they learn in the classroom to real life situations by being an active participant in serving those around them.
Prayer Partners - Our older students pair with younger students to attend weekly all school Mass and work together in faith on community outreach projects. Students have participated with their prayer partners on donation drives, to supply holiday cards and care packages to local nursing home residents, and send well wishes to college students.
8th Grade Life Skills Class projects - this year have included assisting the Catholic Women's League with making fleece scarves for charitable organizations and assisting the local Servants of the Holy Heart of Mary Sisters in preparing plastic bags to be woven into blankets for the homeless.
Catholic Schools Week Service Project - Information about this year's project coming soon. Catholic Schools Week begins on Sunday, January 29.
Last year's project included:
