Catholic Schools Week will be held January 31st thru February 4th, 2022. More information will be available as that date gets closer.
The students of St. Vincent de Paul School have opportunities to grow in their knowledge of God’s care for them and the responsibility they have to care for others through programs of stewardship. Collections (money, food, clothing) during the school year support such needs as the pro-life cause, the library, Guardian Angel fund, needs of the poor, evangelization and others. Students are encouraged to give from their own resources, and to pray and sacrifice to help needy children around the world. One of the primary recipients of our stewardship (including all of the money collected on Spirit Days) is the Missionary Childhood Association (MCA): “Children helping children.” For those who receive aid, the Missionary Childhood Association can mean the difference between life and death. For the children who give aid, it is an experience that teaches the lesson of Christian apostleship and love, and one that shapes the attitudes of a lifetime. Since being raised to the status of a Pontifical Society in 1926, the Holy Childhood Association has continuously received strong Papal endorsement for its unique role in developing mission awareness in Catholic youth.
Students will participate in activities that target the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy.
