Service is a way to deepen our concern for others and turn it into meaningful action. It's a calling to use our unique gifts and talents to help those in need. It's an attitude and a spirit that will stay with us for the rest of our lives.

Each year in the spring, the  students  at Holy Spirit Middle and High and their teachers have an opportunity to put their learning about social justice and Catholic Social Teachings into practice. As Christians, Jesus commissioned each of us through St. Peter to, "feed his sheep." Students are invited to consider what kind of service project they may be interested in, and then are asked to choose from a number of local and statewide organizations to bring the message of the Good News out into the community. Some of the organizations that the students have visited in the past include:

Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind

Caring Days

Catholic Social Services

Community Soup Bowl

Eagles Wings

Greene County Nursing Home

Habitat for Humanity

Head Start - Greene County

McGraw Center

Metro Animal Shelter

RISE

Temporary Emergency Services

After spending half a day working with and for the people served by the organizations, the students return to school to reflect and share about their experiences.

Many of our school parents join us for this wonderful day. So, if you are ever interested in joining us, or have another suggested placement for future Service Days; please feel free to contact Kathy Bergeron in the school's Campus Ministry office.
