During this season of giving, St. Michael the Archangel Catholic High School students have been heavily involved in giving back to the community. For this year’s Fall Big Give, St. Michael collected food donations to assist Catholic Charities Kansas City-St. Joseph in filling their food pantry. St. Michael overflowed the collection barrels, bringing in 4300 pounds of food items.
The St. Michael Drumline was invited to bring some energy and holiday spirit to the Mayor’s Tree Lighting ceremony in downtown Lee’s Summit. Members of the St. Michael Chamber Choir performed for the Thanksgiving Feast with seniors at the Gamber Community Center.
A group of students, along with Father Paul Sappington, attended the 5th Annual Community Service Appreciation Luncheon in Lee’s Summit. St. Michael was asked to shine a light on their accomplishments that make the community better.
In addition, St. Michael students continue to work on their Christian Service Projects giving 25 hours of service to an approved organization assisting the poor, the oppressed, and marginalized groups of people. Students in the A+ program also complete 50 hours of unpaid tutoring or mentoring. Serving others is a fundamental piece of St. Michael and supports the school’s mission to Know Truth, Love God, and Serve Others.
