The Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy are actions we can perform that extend God’s compassion and mercy to those in need. (Loyola Press). There are seven Corporal Works of Mercy, and every month one of our classes leads the school in a service project relating to each of these works.
This month the second grade is leading our school in a coat drive for the Corporal Work of Mercy, Clothe the Naked. Our students will have the opportunity to organize and collect the items that are donated and all gear that is collected will be donated to St. Vincent de Paul. Our local Knights of Columbus Chapter will be coming into the school to discuss what a great impact the coat drive has on the community. And, money that was collected for our October dress down day will go to St. Vincent de Paul.
If you would like contribute to our 2nd graders project, donations will be accepted until the end of October.
