St. Francis & St. Margaret Schools Donation to SVDP

December 14, 2018

WWJD?

Often heard and often spoken, yet it was truly in action today!

What would Jesus do?  He would feed the hungry and help those in need.

 

During this Advent season, both St. Francis and St. Margaret schools rallied their students and staff to collect a mountain of food!  Not only did they collect enough to be able to put together hampers for their own communities, but they also donated to families in need within the  Canadian Martyrs' parish community.

 

AND the students at St. Margaret School sorted all of the items and assisted in loading up the volunteer van that transported the donations.

 

THEN there happened to be students from St. Francis School who were walking past the van through the church parking lot who agreed to carry all of the very heavy boxes piled with cans and overflowing with food and other donations (see photos below) into the church.  They also offered to carry the boxes down the long flight of stairs to the St. Vincent de Paul storage room.  The three gentlemen who assisted were on their way to represent their school at a basket ball game.

 

In response to what Jesus calls us to do, these two school communities, namely their young people and their staff, have made a difference in the lives of many.  Their call to service and willingness to help, even at a moment's notice, was truly humbling.

 

We are grateful for the many ways our partnership with St. Francis and St. Margaret schools enrich our faith community and, it is hoped, touches them in return.  We wish all in these two communities countless blessings and much joy as we prepare for the coming of our Lord.
