Service & Outreach
“Sitting down, He called the twelve and said to them, ‘If anyone wants to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.’” - Mark 9:35
Jesus' call to the service of others is at the heart of the Gospel message. Our entire community is challenged to answer that call throughout the school year. During Lent and Advent various outreach projects are conducted. For Thanksgiving a food drive is conducted for Providence House and the CHiPS Soup Kitchen and Shelter. At Christmas time each home room as well as the Faculty and Staff dedicate their efforts to adopting a family through the Brooklyn Diocese Catholic Charities "Bright Christmas".
Thanksgiving Eve brings our traditional StreetCorner Gourmet, where our community prepares over 350 pounds of stuffing which will become part of a larger Thanksgiving meal served on the streets of Harlem.
Midnight Run is an organization that coordinates relief missions throughout the year, in which volunteers distribute food, clothing, blankets and personal care items to the homeless poor on the streets of New York City. The human exchange of trust, sharing, understanding, and affection rather than the exchange of goods, is the essence of Midnight Runs. Students and faculty can sign up to participate in the Campus Ministry Office in the Library
Each summer, Sophomores and Juniors are invited to join in an five-day immersive service experience in Philadelphia during our Summer Outreach Project
