Catholic High Schools Join to Help Needy: Between Sunday, Oct. 4th and Friday, Oct. 9th, all area Catholic high schools are supporting the efforts of the St. Vincent DePaul Society by collecting gently used clothing and shoes. As you rotate your summer wardrobe for fall, it’s a great time to weed out those items that you no longer want or need. Donations can be made in the drop-off bin in the school parking lot. Please help us join with other archdiocesan schools in carrying out God’s mission to clothe those who might otherwise go without.
