North County Catholic School Students Donate

North County Catholic School Students Donate
over $8,200 to Catholic Charities for Hurricane Relief 


 

Look for coverage on local media this evening - KSDK Channel 5 and KMOV Channel 4 attended our event this morning!

Students at all the Catholic elementary schools in North County participated in various fundraising efforts this month to support relief efforts in the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. With pocket change collections, dress down days and other creative events and ideas, each school raised money to support Hurricane Relief Efforts through Catholic Charities St. Louis. On Wednesday, Sept. 27th students from each school gathered at SSM Health DePaul Hospital to present their collection for Catholic Charities St. Louis (CCSL). As a symbol of how they "pooled" their funds, the students each poured a container of coins and bills into a plastic swimming pool. Mrs. Cheryl Archibald, Board Chair for CCSL accepted the donation of more than $8,200, 100% of the students' donations will be used to support relief efforts in affected areas. Shelly Cordum, MS, RN, Chief Nursing Officer at DePaul Hospital, spoke to the students about how their donations are so needed and appreciated, from her perspective as someone who was actively involved in relief efforts after Hurricane Katrina.

Planning Underway for Sacramental Preparation Retreats The schools and PSR programs from our Federation parishes are working together on sacramental preparation retreat days for 2nd grade students at Pallottine Renewal Center and for 7th-8th grade students at Trinity Catholic High School. Retreat days for 2nd grade students are set for Oct. 5, Oct. 25 and Nov. 6 at Pallottine Renewal Center. The full-day retreats will be led by the Sacred Heart Sisters from the Archdiocese's Paul VI Institute. Last year's retreats were funded by a grant from The Koch Foundation, and were so successful that pastors and principals decided to continue them this year even without grant funding. A grant is being requested to continue them for 2018-19.

On Friday, Oct.13 Trinity Catholic High School will again host the North County Deanery's Confirmation Youth Rally. The REAP Team leads this interactive day for 7th and 8th grade students preparing for confirmation, both from elementary schools and PSR programs. Bishop Rivituso will celebrate the closing mass at 3pm at the end of the Rally. Please pray for all those preparing this special day, and for the students who are ready to take the next step in their faith journeys.

Parish Schools of Religion

Parish Schools of Religion (PSRs) provide catechetical instruction to children and youth who attend public schools, so that young people can grow in intimacy with Jesus, be knowledgeable about their faith, and integrate the teachings of the Gospel into their lives.  Parish religion programs also prepare young people for the reception of first sacraments.  Over 119 parishes, with over 16,300 PSR students, offer programs to assist parents in the faith formation of their children.
