The 8th grade Confirmation class spent the morning on Saturday, Jan. 30th, 2021 volunteering at the Haven of Rest homeless shelter in Akron making beds, folding clothes, and setting up lunch for the residents at the shelter and those in need in the community. They are working to acquire service hours before they celebrate the sacrament of Confirmation later this spring. Thank you to the students and parents who took time out of their busy schedules to give back! St. Teresa of Avila, a Carmelite sister, mystic, and first female Doctor of the Church, said it best:

"Christ has no body but yours,
No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks
Compassion on this world,
Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good,
Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world.
Yours are the hands, yours are the feet,
Yours are the eyes, you are his body.
Christ has no body now but yours,

No hands, no feet on earth but yours."

-St.Teresa of Avila (1515–1582)
