Inspiring a passion for service is a large part of our mission statement at All Saints Catholic School. During the Year of Mercy, our students completed monthly service projects focusing on the Corporal Works of Mercy. All Saints Catholic School fed the hungry, clothed the naked, sheltered the homeless, visited the sick and imprisoned, buried the dead and gave alms to the poor. Our students participated in various food and clothing drives, a Christmas toy drive for needy families, donated to local families and hospitals for those who are sick, visited nursing homes and the Marshall County Animal Shelter, where students volunteered their time for an entire month. We held special prayer services to honor and pray for the dead, and most importantly, our students learned about giving to those in need. These actions truly embody our mission statement of inspiring a passion for service and learning.
Our children do not simple perform acts of service and forget it, rather, they participate in service-learning activities to reflect on how their service impacts others. Service learning helps to inspire a life-long love for serving others.
Here’s an example of what our kids learn:
3rd grader, Paige Gorby recently donated several bags of clothing to the House of the Carpenter II Moundsville. Her dad sent us this picture and told us how inspired she is by our service learning program and how she wants to help others in need. This is what our mission is all about – inspiring a passion for service. Paige’s passion will inspire others. We are SAINTS WHO SERVE!
