At St. Martha School, students are stewards of their faith. A variety of service clubs and projects allow students to be the hands and heart of God in our school, parish and wider communities. It is our belief that all are called to do God’s work in the world and it is never too early to start. Clubs include:
- Kindergarten Kares in which kindergarten students perform random acts of kindness to others throughout our community.
- First Grade Service Club in which first grade students perform service projects for hospitals and nursing homes.
- Rosary Club – Students K-8 come together to learn about, pray and make rosaries for the community.
Service Projects include:
- Over $1,300 was donated to Hope Scarves, a charity which provides scarves to those who lose their hair during treatments for cancer, through the sale of breast cancer awareness T-shirts.
- Over $2,700 was collected and given to Catholic Charities to assist Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts.
- St. Martha has teamed up with Newcomer Academy, a school which teaches students new to the United States who have little or no knowledge of the English language. The kindergarten and 7th grade classes work in small groups to assist Newcomer students in speaking and writing English.
- We provided families of SEAM (South East Area Ministries) complete Thanksgiving meals by collecting monetary and food donations.
- Over a hundred of Christmas Stockings were filled and distributed to children through SEAM.
- Families were assisted through St. Martha Parish’s Giving Tree program.
- Donations were made to support the Heifer International program, which supplies families with animals for food.
- 8th grade Confirmation candidates dedicated hundreds of hours of service to over 30 organizations, including Dare to Care, Home of the Innocence, Guilda’s Club, Hand-In-Hand Ministries, and SEAM to name a few.
