As Catholic Christians, we are called to use our time, talent, and treasure to serve the needs of others. God designed us to make a difference with our lives and expects us to give something back. We were created to add to life on earth and not just take from it. Service to others is a gift we continually call upon to help those in need.
Our school community serves by being stewards of the gifts we have been given:
- caring for our classrooms and materials through recycling and respectful use
- caring for one another through our words and actions
- cleaning our physical grounds by picking up litter
- reducing the amount of waste in our cafeteria and composting when possible
- participating in numerous service projects throughout the school year including: picking up litter during the city-wide “Litter Bit Better” campaign
- volunteering as bell ringers for the Salvation Army Red Kettle campaign
- providing entertainment to the Sisters of St. Francis at Christmas to show our appreciation to those who have committed their lives to us and to God
- visiting residents in the nursing home twice a month offering the greatest gifts of all, our time and our love
- collecting for Catholic Charities baby bottle campaign (Matthew 25:40)
- making placemats and fleece blankets for Crisis Nursery to provide essential care products of comfort to the "littlest among us."
Our school community serves our world by:
- our Student Council coordinating an Advent collection for Mission Childhood Association to care for God's children throughout the world
- collecting monetary funds for Catholic Relief Services Operation Rice Bowl to offer the hungry not only a healthy meal, but also hope
- System-wide food and dry goods collection campaign in support of the students and families of the Catholic St. Mary’s Mission School on the Red Lake Indian Reservation in northern Minnesota
