Our parish has adopted two underprivileged Catholic schools in Dallas to support. Both Santa Clara and St. Cecilia Catholic School serve students from Pre-K thru 8th grade. Most of the families of these schools work two or more jobs to provide a Catholic education for their children.
The proceeds of our annual carnival raffle sales help fund common items for the proper running of a school:
- Tables, chairs, and desks
- Textbooks and children’s’ literature books
- Hands-on Science Kits
- New servers, smart boards
- Playground equipment
- Replacing broken windows, and old ceiling tiles
- Cleaning up and updating landscaping
Be on the look out for future projects via St. Jude’s website, Facebook, and twitter page as well as the weekly bulletin.
