Community Outreach

Stewardship begins early with our SJS students as we try to live out our philosophy of "Faith in Action." We are given many opportunities to give of our time, talent, and treasures. Each day teachers and students begin their day with prayers which often includes praying for those in need. The money collected weekly from each class for our Missions is used for many community outreach programs which include: Loaves and Fishes, Family Advancement Ministries, St. Vincent d'Paul, Ronald McDonald House, Habitat for Humanity, the Mentor Program, and Hearts for Heroes, just to name a few of those we have helped. Our Student Council and K- Kids also sponsor food drives throughout the year as well as make items for nursing homes. SJS strives to not only serve our immediate community but to assist to those throughout the world in their time of need.
