Mission Club

 

Instilling the value of service in the Mission Club members is a vital part of this organization, as the students learn to reach out and help those who are less fortunate in the world in imitation of Jesus.

  • open to all 3rd through 8th graders
  •  meetings are held monthly on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 8:00 am in the back of Jerome Hall

 The purpose of the Mission Club:

  • by praying for the less fortunate
  • collecting money
  • sponsoring various projects to help them

 Mission money is collected in each homeroom throughout the year in a mission pouch:

  • each year we choose a mission country to support
  • students learn about the mission country and the needs of the people there
  • the money is sent to Holy Childhood Association, the sponsoring agency
  • various fundraisers such as bake sales are held to benefit the missions
  • a Mission Fair is held, and all proceeds go to support our mission country
  • sponsors food drives to help the poor in our own community
  • organizations such as Second Harvest and the Rebuild Center are the recipients of the food collected
  • members pack all of the food for distribution 
  • a service project is selected at Christmas time and all members participate

Field trips:

  • are occasionally scheduled to increase the members’ awareness of some of the agencies in our area which support the poor and needy
