St. Augustine School Gives Back to South Brunswick

The students, faculty and staff of Saint Augustine School in Kendall Park are not fretting over the cold winter days, but rather resonating through helping hands and warm hearts!

During Catholic Schools Week, St. A’s dedicated a lunch day which offered soup only as one’s meal. The students bought a simple soup meal in recognition of helping those less fortunate. The remaining lunch monies of each student was generously donated to the food pantry. In addition, students, faculty and staff each donated canned and non-perishable food items all for the Outreach Ministry and local food bank community. The Kindergarten Classes participated in a touching act of goodness by wrapping plastic cutlery and napkins to coordinate with their handmade placemats for the soup kitchen.

The fervency continued with the Third Grade Classes in a Parent Day Celebration.

Students and Parents gathered in small groups to pray and read Scripture together. Creativity of the mind and spirit was abundant as each family made a bookmark with a Bible verse written and personalized. The Bookmarks will be donated to Catholic Charities Ozanam Men’s Shelter in New Brunswick, Diocese of Metuchen.

“Simple acts of kindness and teaching awareness to our students is one of the beautiful aspects of our Catholic faith”, said Principal, Sister Mary Louise Shulas, MPF. Award-winning, quality education coupled with Catholic faith based learning is what drives the mission of the school to achieve excellence in each student who is part of the Saint Augustine school community.
