St. Joseph's Catholic School students in Macon exemplify the Corporal Works of Mercy through community outreach opportunities

Originally Appeared in : 9724-11/23/17

The Corporal Works of Mercy provide all Catholics with a model for how we should treat all others. They are charitable actions by which we help our neighbors in their bodily needs. At SJS, providing service to our community begins early as students are taught to live out our philosophy of “Faith in Action.” Students are given many opportunities to give their time, talent, and treasures to those in need. Each day teachers and students begin their day with prayers, which often include praying for others. The money collected weekly from each class for our Missions is used for many community outreach programs including: Loaves and Fishes, Family Advancement Ministries, Jay’s Hope, First Baptist Church Christ food pantry, Ronald McDonald House, Operation Rice Bowl, and Joshua’s Wish. St. Joseph’s Student Council and K- Kids 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 those throughout the world in their time of need.
