Kindergarten and Pre-First students give to The Little Sisters of the Poor who run nursing homes for the poor who have no means to support themselves. During Lent, the Kindergarten and Pre-First students collect items for Our Daily Bread.
Personal care items are collected by the second grade students who provide them to those in need through the House of Ruth. The House of Ruth helps women and their children “find the safety and security that so many of us take for granted.”
Third grade students donate items to the School Sisters of Notre Dame at the Motherhouse. As part of their commitment to community involvement, the students personally deliver the Christmas gifts to them, so they can witness the joy it brings them.
Fourth and Fifth grade students give to St. Vincent DePaul Head Start Program. Students and families donated new stuffed animals, books, and classroom materials to those in need.
The Thanksgiving Outreach is a school-wide initiative for Vincent DePaul families. Fifth grade pack and organize the bags of groceries for the families, which provide so many meals, even those on the waiting list were able to enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner. To top it off, Giant food cards were donated to each family.
During Catholic Schools week the third, fourth and fifth grades make breakfast bags for My Sister’s Place – amounting to 400 bags! Last year the 4th and 5th grade participated in Socks of Love which are new men’s socks that have been filled with men’s toiletries. They were donated to the Weinberg Housing and Resource Center which house about 275 homeless men a night.
Middle School Students work with the Baltimore Pregnancy Center North, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping women and children in need.
There are many more school-wide outreach initiatives throughout the school year.
Each April, the School of the Cathedral hosts the Annual Cardinal Cup race. The funds are directed to our sister school, Mother Seton Academy. Families of both school come out and support this annual tradition!
