"For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10
Service is a school tradition at SLCS, as each grade level serves a different segment of our population, in an effort to teach and expose our students to the Spiritual and Corporal Acts of Mercy that we are all called to address as Catholics. We are very proud of our commitment to service; we provide age appropriate projects and provide an additional learning opportunity by educating students about the needs of others. We are so blessed at SLCS and continue to try and instill in our students the moral fiber to never turn away from a call to serve.
Below you can see, in addition to service by our student organizations, what each grade level was involved in last year and how our students helped those in need!
