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.
