A BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE

Mother Teresa Outreach

All Saints’ Mother Teresa Outreach provides an opportunity to encourage stewardship among our students. Through our Mother Teresa Outreach, students are invited to make contributions to benefit the students of our sister school, St. Thomas, In Haiti. Last year, students contributed a total of $1905.73.

All of the funds received through this program will directly benefit St. Thomas, helping to defer the cost of school lunches and supplies. Students will again utilize the collection envelopes provided earlier this year. In the event students no longer have access to these envelopes, they are encouraged to use any type of envelope. Our goal is to cultivate a lifestyle of stewardship among our students. In the words of Mother Teresa – β€œThe miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are happy to do it.”

Students in Grades 5 and 6 are also provided with the opportunity to participate in the Children for Charity Program. This Program, led by Mrs. Vickie Bill, focuses on the work of Mother Teresa. As Catholics, we are called to serve others, especially those less fortunate. Students will learn that by doing small things, they can make a big difference in the life of someone else.
