Welcome Back to School

The Peace & Justice Club was excited to begin the new school year at Benedictine Academy. As they reflected on the gift of their education at BA, they were reminded of our many little brothers and sisters who are homeless in the surrounding communities because of the recession. Working with the Elizabeth Coalition for the Homeless, they put together 50 school bags with new school supplies for the children. Last year, we raised funds to build a school and clean water system in the Sierra Leone in an effort to stop Human Trafficking. This year, we will be thinking globally and acting locally. Our school theme "learning to love" means to reach out to all our brothers and sisters in need. Performing spiritual and corporal works of mercy are the foundation of Campus Ministry.
