“Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of my brothers, you did it to me” – Matthew 25:40
On September 5th, we celebrated the feast day of St. Teresa of Calcutta who urged us “to do small things with great love.” The past few weeks have been a challenging time in our world, and we, as Christians, are called to “help the least of our brothers.” This week, Kellenberg will be sponsoring a Spiritual Day of Action in conjunction with the Feast of the Triumph of the Cross.
Following the natural disasters that have occurred in our country, some proceeds from the Day of Action will go toward St. Peter Claver Catholic Church in the Tremé neighborhood of New Orleans. Father Ajani Gibson, a priest of the parish, is a Catholic University classmate of Brother Peter Sennert, S.M. Currently, a parish relief fund is being established, and KMHS will be assisting monetarily and in prayer. In addition, Kellenberg will “Light It Up Gold” for Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month in September. This cause is near and dear to many Kellenberg families. On September 5th, the Ruchalski and Murphy families joined the Marianist Community in lighting the trees gold surrounding the Kellenberg entrance sign in honor of Mary Ruchalski and Dylan Murphy ’24.
Students may stop into the ARK on Tuesday, September 14th, and Wednesday, September 15th to support these causes. Each donation will be given a lantern to light up their homes/porches/walkways on the weekend of September 18th to “Light It Up Gold” for Pediatric Cancer. A $10 donation would go a long way to help these great causes. If any family is interested in making a larger donation to any of these causes, please contact Mr. Bryan Finn in the ARK. Thank you for your support!
