A key component of this approach is creating a link between Catholic social teaching and service. Each student has the opportunity to live this out through age-appropriate service projects focused on the Corporal Works of Mercy. Learning about underlying social issues or environmental hurdles, students have multiple opportunities each year to learn from their experiences and make an impact for the community.
The whole school supports the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry by having many food collections during the school year. Everyone also participates in a Rice Bowl collection for our parish’s sister parish in Bombardopolis, Haiti.
The school staff even has an annual service project where they work together to prepare and serve a meal for the local homeless community.
