“Truly, I say to you, whenever you did it to the least of my brothers, you did it for Me.” Matthew 25:35-41
Helping others is one of the hallmarks of Christian living. As members of the Body of Christ, we answer the call to love and to serve the Lord. Through age appropriate venues, St. Gregory students and faculty deepen their concern for others by completing meaningful acts of Christian service. These actions lead to a mindset that we see Christ in those in need. Our goal is for this spirit of giving to stay with students and faculty for the rest of their lives.
Student service projects include food drives, Coats for Kids, Easter baskets for social services, tray favors for Tyler’s Meals on Wheels homebound program, blankets for St. Vincent dePaul, and more. Faculty projects include monthly cards and favors for shut-ins, painting and landscaping for Crisis Center safe houses, making stuffed animals for the Children’s Advocacy Center, creating Boo-Boo Bunnies for a local hospital, and more.
The students of St. Gregory received the city of Tyler’s Volunteer of the Year,Youth Award for their on-going service projects. PATH (People Attempting to Help) also presented the student body with the Stone Soup Award in recognition of their help in feeding the hungry.
