High School and 8th Grade Faith Formation Students participate in outreach as an essential part of their Catholic formation. This year, we have chosen to help fight global hunger with Catholic Relief Services (CRS) Helping Hands.
Recognizing the Catholic call to love our neighbor, CRS Helping Hands serves the vulnerable in two ways: sending food for immediate hunger relief, and providing skills training and income-generating projects to prevent hunger in the long-term.
During our CRS Helping Hands Event, our Confirmation Students will prepare and package 10,000 meals to help feed vulnerable children, women, and men in the African country of Burkina Faso.
Here’s where everyone can help: Click Here and donate today! 100% of donations go towards purchasing the ingredients for the meals our students will pack. 1 nutritious meal costs 50 cents! $20.00 pays for 40 meals! We will be packing 10,000 meals on January 20th, 2018!
No donation amount is too small! The life-changing results are priceless!
