Service Opportunities After School
Students of Service gives students the opportunity to live “acts of kindness” - the Corporal Works of Mercy. The objective is to have the children know firsthand the challenges and rewards of caring for those in need. The works of mercy are important because they connect the love of neighbor with the love of God. In the past students have raked leaves for shut-ins, collected gently used shoes, visited retired nuns and sang Christmas carols. In our busy, modern day society, there are multiple ways we can do this meaningful work.
Each grade level has a specific theme to explore and grade level parent coordinators volunteer to organize optional after-school service opportunities.
