Service Project

Now through Friday, October 4 (the Feast of St. Francis) , our PK, Kindergarten, and First Grade are sponsoring a service project to collect items for Special Pals to help abandoned animals.  We invite all families to contribute.

Please click here  for a list of needed items.

Please click here  for more information on Special Pals.

Special Pals is a no-kill, nonprofit, Houston area animal shelter that relies on donations. Their mission is to make a measurable and sustainable difference in the pet population by offering affordable pet care services, rescue and rehabilitation, finding forever homes, and providing responsible pet ownership education.  

Pope Francis has established September 1 as an annual World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. Pope Francis wishes to remind us that we are called to be protectors of God's handiwork and this includes the care for God's creatures, great and small.  

St. Francis of Assisi also had a devotion to God that was expressed through his love for all of God's creation. St. Francis cared for the poor and sick, he preached sermons to animals, and praised all creatures as brothers and sisters under God.
