St. Christopher School
The goal of the Faith Outreach Group is to work toward providing a spiritually enriching environment for our children. Volunteers can participate in all kinds of ways, including helping in the classrooms with a particular community service project, being a liaison between the school and adopted clergy, or even helping with mailings and event planning for Vocation Day. Monthly meetings are held first thing in the morning or at lunchtime. The Faith Outreach Group consists of three programs:
- Adopt-A-Priest/Religious - priests, sisters, and deacons from the community pair up with a classroom and visit monthly with the children to strengthen our vital Catholic faith connection. The religious share many aspects of their lives with the students and build a wonderful relationship with the students throughout the year.
- Vocation Awareness – the annual Vocation Day, held in the Fall, is a unique tradition at St. Christopher School where priests, sisters, deacons and lay people who are dedicated to Catholic religious life are invited to the school to share with the children the path God has chosen for them. Each year, there is a different theme for Vocation Day.
- Community Service – Special projects are chosen each year for the parents, teachers, and students to share our faith with others by reaching out to those in need. Some examples of projects we’ve worked on are Operation Christmas Child, quilts & blankets made and donated to Project Linus and Nashua Children’s Home, Easter baskets donated to the Nashua Children’s Home, and special crafts and cards delivered to participants of the Meals on Wheels program.
