On Friday, Sept. 12, 250 students from Cardinal Stritch High School in Oregon participated in a fall Students in Action Service Day.

Students, ranging in age from 14 to 18 years old, left the classrooms and set out into the community, eager to donate their time and labor to help out at the Little Sisters of the Poor, the YMCA and a number of Catholic parishes including St. Jerome, St. Thomas, St. Ignatius, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, Sacred Heart, Good Shepherd and St. Stephen.

Throughout the day, students stuffed scarecrows, cleaned lockers, disinfected toys, mopped, spent time with senior citizens, cleaned pews, cleaned kitchens and swept churches.

“As we form disciples of Christ, we try to instill in our students the need to give back to the community, for all the good the community has done for us,” said Fr. Eric Schild, Cardinal Stritch president.

“Not only does it make you feel good, but it also inspires others to give back to our community,” said senior Olivia Latz.

Another school service day is planned in the spring.
