John Cabot CSS Serves with JOY

As part of the grade 12 retreat program at John Cabot Catholic Secondary School, the senior students participate in a day of service at the Good Shepherd Ministries in Toronto.  The Good Shepherd provides approximately 1000 meals a day to homeless people in the city of Toronto. The shelter also provides a safe place for homeless men to sleep each night. The shelter runs primarily on the service, kindness and compassion of volunteers. The John Cabot grade 12 students have been involved in several acts of service at the shelter including unloading boxes of food, preparing and serving meals in the kitchen, organizing the food pantry, working in the clothing room, making beds and folding linens. The grade 12s shared what they learned from this experience. They have become more aware of the serious issue of homelessness. They have learned not to take things for granted. The grade 12 students also expressed how important it is to do acts of service and to give back to the community. More importantly, the senior students shared how good it felt to do acts of kindness for others.  Upon returning to our school chapel, we prayed the following prayer: “As we live each day, we pray for those less fortunate, especially those who are hurting, and for those who are hungry. Help us become involved in ways that show them how deeply we care.”


All parents are invited to join our Catholic School Council. Our next meeting is on Wednesday, November 26, 2014 at 7:00 pm in the Library.  Nomination forms are available in the Main Office.
