Service is an integral opportunity that allows students to achieve excellence outside of the classroom. Lake Catholic is committed to seeking opportunities for our students to serve others in our community.
Lake Catholic High School enjoys a close-knit relationship with St. Thomas Aquinas Elementary School in Cleveland. Multiple events are organized for service opportunities, all school drives, and special projects. We love our little Cougars! For questions, contact Mr. Gregg Stovicek at email@example.com.
Feed My Lambs Meal Ministry We make our commitment to the hungry and the homeless with food preparation as our personal connection to people in immediate need. On the last Tuesday of each month, we prepare 60 hot meals for Project Hope for the Homeless in Painesville. We also make 200 sandwiches and pots of soup to be served at St. Malachi Hunger Center in Cleveland. Students and adults join to make these meals in a spirit of solidarity and fellowship.
The monthly cost of this program is $500 and we hope you will consider an exciting underwriting opportunity of the Feed My Lambs Meal Ministry Program. We hope you will join us in our efforts to help people in need from our community. For more information on underwriting opportunities click here.
This special ministry allows us to serve others while reinforcing the consistent ethic of respect for life from conception to natural death. Our scholars respond to requests from families in need of pallbearers or altar servers for wakes, funerals, and graveside services. Humbled and honored, we pray with the families and act as representatives of our greater Catholic family with respect and compassion.
Lake Catholic strives to educate the whole person intellectually, spiritually, and physically. As active members of a vibrant community, our students develop an awareness of their responsibility to use their gifts and talents for the greater good in our society. We are proud that, along with academic excellence, service is an integral part of the mission of Lake Catholic High School. Our Service Program instills and encourages a spirit of respect and compassion that prompts students to expand their willingness to serve. This 'attitude of service' provides our students with opportunities to fully live the Gospel message and to express their faith and education through action.
