Christian Service Projects
St. Junipero Serra Catholic students live out a Faith-Filled Life and Missionary Spirit throughout the year by participating in various school-wide Christian Service Projects. This year our school once again plans to support the following organizations;
- Pennies from Heaven, working in partnership with St. Kilian Parish in celebration of Respect for Life, students fill baby bottles with extra change with proceeds going to young women throughout Orange County who choose life.
- Baby Shower & Clothing Drive, to support Loaves & Fishes, an organization in Santa Ana which supports underprivileged families within our community.
- Operation Rice Bowl, during Lent, students support Catholic Relief Services by filling up cardboard rice bowl containers with spare change. These funds go to CRS, which aids food security around the world.
- Food for Friends, each month students are actively involved in collecting food for our community supporting the food pantries at each of our parishes.
