School Lenten Service Projects

During Lent, Catholics make special efforts to pray, do penance, and do good deeds. While we are called to do good deeds every day of the year, we make a special effort during the season of Lent. During Lent we follow Jesus’ example of service.

Jesus provided for the hungry and cared for the sick. Like Jesus, we do our best to help other people who are in need.  During this Lenten season our school is taking part in various collections to help those in our community and the inner city.

 

Capuchin Brothers Hygiene Collection

During Lent we will be colleting hygiene products for St. Ben’s and the House of Peace in Milwaukee. During the next few weeks, families will fill up a paper bag with soap, shampoo, toothpaste, lip balm, shaving needs, hand sanitizer, and more. These items will be distributed to the poor, hungry, and homeless. The little things add up to so much more! If you would like to make a donation please drop off any goods to our school between 9am-3pm at 1425 Covered Bridge Rd., Cedarburg.

Soup Drive for Family Sharing

Our 7th graders have organized a soup drive as part of the school’s leadership series. Soup cans will be collected in the front lobby the first two weeks in March. Students have been making posters and hanging them around school and have been “on-air” at school sharing information over the speaker system. We hope to collect over 600 cans of soup, can we do it?!

4th Annual Food Drive

One of our 5th grade students is holding her very own food drive for Family Sharing of Ozaukee County. She has been collecting food for four years in a row! We are so proud of her individual efforts to make a difference in the world. She is the perfect example of the power of just ONE individual. Keep up the amazing work! If you are interested in helping with this food drive, please email the school at office@sfbschool.org

Coins for Uganda

Over 20 years ago, group of St. Francis Borgia parishioners went to Uganda to learn more about a parish in Uganda and pledge our financial and spiritual support. Our commitment as Catholics is to “teach all nations.” Whether we take a very active role or a passive one we are all reminded that we have a very important responsibility to respond to Christ’s call to “Go teach all nations.”

“Twinning” shows that we are all missionaries, whether we live in Uganda or Wisconsin, and we all have gifts to share.

Students will be collecting coins the last week in March to support our twinning parish in Uganda. They will also be learning about the culture and the school in our twinning organization over the course of the week.
