This year our Advent Service Project will be to help the students and families at Saint Paul Catholic School in New Bern, North Carolina. This is a Prek - 8 school with a student body of about 165 students. A school, while smaller, very much like ours.
Saint Paul’s was in the direct path of Hurricane Florence and although the school did not sustain much damage many of the family’s homes and belongings were damaged or destroyed.
Saint Ignatius of Loyola prayed “Lord, teach me to be generous. Teach me to serve You as You deserve.” When we are generous we express our thankfulness to God for all He has given us.
Please help us by donating Amazon Gift cards.
Please use a permanent marker to note the value on the card. The needs of Saint Paul’s School families are very diverse; clothes, furniture, and toys to help the children celebrate can disperse them to their families to use as they need.
We will be collecting cards from December 5
to the 19
. We will pair grades together by Mass buddies and will reward the pair of classes with the greatest number of cards collected with a pizza lunch.
We at Saint Michael’s have always been generous in reaching out to those in need.
May God bless you for your generosity.
