MCS STUDENTS CHALLENGE YOU TO STEP UP AND JOIN THEM AS THEY ACCEPT THE INVITATION FROM POPE FRANCIS TO PROVIDE ASSISTANCE TO THE POOR

Our Holy Father Pope Francis has inaugurated a World Day of the Poor to occur every year on the Thirty-Third Sunday of the Liturgical Year. This year the date fell on Sunday 19 November, and the student leaders of our Student Council met to consider what our community’s response to the Holy Father’s invitation would be this year. As a community, we are launching an $8,000 campaign this week in response to Pope Francis, to provide support for three institutions:
1) Catholic Relief Services and their emergency responses in South Sudan and Central Africa
2) M-Lisada Organization – a school and orphanage located in the slums of Kampala, Uganda
3) Zarqa North Catholic School – our sister school in Jordan
