Staff Devote Day of Service
Faculty and staff of Rochester Catholic Schools spent the day outside of their classrooms and school buildings to help others throughout the community during the RCS Day of Service on February 18.
During this third annual system-wide event, which takes place on a non-school day for students, employees participated in various service projects at 15 nonprofit organizations in Rochester. In addition to helping the greater community through these projects, the RCS staff is leading by example and inspiring students to grow in their Catholic faith through service to others.
“When we view our gifts of service and leadership as graces from God and embrace the people we serve, then we become true stewards of the Word. We must humble ourselves to a future of service and work with students so they can reach their full potential as human beings and disciples of Christ,” said Haidee Todora, RCS Director of Schools.
Service projects included activities like cleaning and organizing at the Dorothy Day House, handiwork at Family Services Rochester, food labeling and packing at Channel One Food Bank, and baking cookies at Hope Lodge.
