CSAC “CHANGE” the World Project

If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one. Mother Theresa

Wednesday, November 8, 2017 found 45 Bishop Ahr students, Sister Cynthia, Mr. John Roche, Mr. Kevin McCarthy, Mr. Harry Ziegler, Ms. Liz Savner, Mrs. Karen Wilton, Ms. Lilly Acab, Mrs. Lynne Braine, Mrs. Dorothy Machovic, Mr. Matt Roche, and Father Keith Cervine putting together 400 bagged lunches for the CSAC “CHANGE” the World Project!  Into each bag of lunch was put a sandwich, a napkin, 2 snack items, and a bottle of water and lots of love.

During the Summer Service “Banner of Love” week held here at BGA, the service week participants decorated and wrote notes on each bag. The decorations and messages were awesome! On Thursday, November 9,2017, the lunches were delivered to TASK (Trenton Area Soup Kitchen) by the BGAHS maintenance staff.

Before beginning the project, the group prayed and asked for God’s blessings on those who would receive the lunch bags and also on those who were making the sandwiches. On this feast day of St. Thomas Aquinas, who is the patron of the high school, the prayer ended with a resounding “St. Thomas Aquinas pray for us!”
All of the bread was donated by the alumni Dama Family and the snacks, water, peanut butter and jelly, bags, and napkins were purchased with money collected from the BGAHS students on dress down day. This was once again a total BGAHS community project – everyone helped, including maintenance staff, faculty, staff, students, alumni, and alumni parents! Thank you to all who helped our “Change” the world project to provide lunches for the poor.
The CSAC “Change” the world project was one small action that helped us here at Bishop Ahr High School to follow Pope Francis’ call to go out of our way and help “change” the life of the poor.
