One of the learning outcomes for our St. Matthew's students is being a good member of the community who helps those in need. As an introduction to the social ministry of the Church, we recognize that our school is part of a wider community and we can make a difference. Each month we offer an option for our students to support particular charities by collecting food, clothing or money. We encourage families to discuss if and how they would like to participate in any or all of these drives.
Community Service is an important part of our junior high religion program. Junior high students are required to perform service in the community outside the family each quarter.
