DO THINGS

… with a Willingness in your Heart

Christian Service Day
On September 27, for Christian Service Day our Grade 7D class had the privilege to visit and help at St. Paul the Apostle church. When we arrived we began by polishing the pews, dusting and cleaning. The St. Paul the Apostle church staff were truly welcoming and treated us to a snack of juice and Timbits! After we were finished our snack we visited with Father Eric and his dog Zack! Finally, we finished the morning by raking leaves. We are so grateful for this experience and the opportunity to give back to our community!
Thank you to everyone at St. Paul the Apostle church for your warm hospitality!
St. Charles Catholic School’s Grade 7D Class, Ms. Tan and Mr. Domolewski

 

Hunger Meal

A Reminder of the Value of Self-Sacrifice and Charity

Every Lent the students at SCCS “offer up” a luncheon meal as a sacrifice for hungry and needy children. In addition, on this day, a collection is made for the poor and distributed through the Missionary Childhood Association.

The students gather with their home room teacher in the classroom and while the Principal reads a reflection over the intercom, they eat only a bowl of soup and a bun. The meal is completed in silence.

The staff who are not assigned to a classroom gather as community in the staff room to do the same.

A long held tradition at SCCS, this simple act serves as a reminder of the value of self-sacrifice and of how the virtue of charity can take many forms.
