In the spirit of Mother Cabrini’s mission to serve those in need, Mr. Liberto’s 11th grade religion classes conducted a service project focusing on the Rebuild Center located at St. Joseph Church in New Orleans.
The purpose of the Rebuild Center is to provide a safe environment, resources and opportunities for collaboration among Catholic and other faith-based organizations in the City of New Orleans for the service of those in need, together in one location.
In collaboration with the Director of Institutional Advancement, Sheri Salvagio, and the Brown Foundation Service Learning Grant, the juniors were able to purchase supplies and create 600 lunch bags for the Rebuild Center. Then, they were able to deliver the lunch bags and tour the facility. Upon their return to the classroom, the students were prompted to write a reflective essay about their experience throughout the project.
