All students and families are encouraged to serve our school, church, and community, as well as each other.  In our lower grades students are called to serve their teacher and their peers through various assigned classroom duties.  As students mature in age, their service matures as well.  In the middle elementary grades, our students perform service through lunch room clean up duties, service during weekly liturgy, and various service outreach projects within the community.  Our fourth grade participates in a monthly service project with the elderly at St. Mary’s Woods nursing home.  In the Middle Years Program, our students are required to perform 25 service hours.  Our students are provided numerous opportunities to participate in service to the church, community, and their peers.  Students serve in the capacity of cantor, cross bearer, altar server, bearer of the gifts, and lector at our weekly masses.  Our students assist the parish in service at various parish sanctioned activities such as Annointing of the Sick, Hospitality functions, parish picnics, and various Knights of Columbus events.  We encourage our students to donate to the weekly mass collection.  These funds are donated to a chosen charity of the month.  In addition, Saint Mary’s students support our sister school in Haiti by adopting students.  At Lent our students participate in collecting funds for the Rice Bowl initiative.
