Community Outreach

Community outreach is an important part of student life and provides opportunities to learn from others whose experiences may differ from his/her own. Personal sacrifice in service to others and encouraging students to develop a commitment to helping those in need is an integral part of our Catholic faith.  Our student body participates in service projects throughout each school year. Examples of community service projects include collecting canned goods, winter coats and baby items for those in need. Our middle school students also participate in sorting and delivering these items to various locations.
