Service

In line with our Student Learning Expectation, “Service to others”, Holy Spirit students are encouraged to share their gifts and talents in order to enrich the greater community by doing direct and indirect service year round.

Loaves & Fishes Dining Room serves a full course, home-cooked, noontime meal for 600-800 homeless guest every day.  On the second Thursday of each month 8th grade students help serve the guests of Loaves & Fishes the only meal many of them will have all day.

Mustard Seed School is a free, private school for homeless and transient children 3 to 15 years old.  On the third Wednesday of each month students of a grade prepare sack lunches for the guests of Mustard Seed School, the only meal many of the children will have all day.

Helping Hearts, a ministry of Holy Spirit parish, provide brown bag lunches for the guests who knock on the office door of the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament.  Up to 200 guests come daily for a brown bag lunch and the demand is great. On the third Wednesday of each month students of a grade prepare a non-perishable brown bag lunch for the folks who come. The lunch is the only meal many of them will have all day.

Throughout the School year Holy Spirit students conduct charity drives to serve the local community and our neighbors south of the border in Baja California.
