Archdiocesan Catholic schools showcase student service projects

Fifteen Catholic schools and two Lutheran schools in St. Louis City were in the spotlight Oct. 5 for their recent community service projects at a student showcase at the Cardinal Rigali Center in Shrewsbury.

The projects were funded by faith-based mini-grant initiatives from the St. Louis Mental Health Board, Incarnate Word Foundation and the Lutheran Foundation. The three organizations formed a partnership that provided each participating school a $500 grant in the 2008-2009 school year. Grant applications for the schools were made through the Nonpublic Schools Consortium, a cooperative effort of private and faith-based schools and community members in the City of St. Louis.

“This was to help youths develop leadership skills through a project of researching a community need and then developing a program, project or other response to that need,” explained Denny Bram, director of school improvement for the Catholic Education Office.
