Students make impact with service

Eighth-graders organize the all-school “See You at the Pole” event in which students gather for prayer.

Service learning takes on a personal meaning at St. Paul the Apostle, and goes beyond simply performing service projects.  Students are encouraged to take a look at their school, parish, community, country and world to identify where a great need exists, and then act to make a difference. 

School fundraising campaigns for Haitian relief, the CROP Walk, Manpower, Project Renewal and local environmental issues have made a difference for everyone involved.  

St. Paul the Apostle believes service is a state of mind, that our actions are the result of a loving heart. When people realize this, their actions in the name of service truly imitate Christ.
