What is Faith IN Action?
Love for others starts at home with parents as the primary educators of their children’s faith formation
Who better to share and mentor than family first? As parents, being disciples of Christ and developing our own ‘home church’ helps to develop children who want to go out and better their community. By expressing love and mentorship from home, we are then a good example for our children and our neighbors. Our Faith in Action program involves all our students in regular service projects that provide valuable support to our community. Faith in Action is student driven and assisted by Saint John XXIII teachers, staff and volunteer parents. Below you will find all of our Faith IN Action projects for the 2023-2024 school year!
