CHS Faculty and Staff Reach Out To The Community

The faculty and staff of Catholic High School reached out to the community during a Day of Experience on Monday, January 24. Eighty-four members volunteered at sites throughout the Baton Rouge area including the St. Vincent de Paul dining room, pharmacy and thrift stores; Connections for Life, YWCA Early Head Start Istrouma, Louisiana School for the Visually Impaired, United Methodist HOPE and Southdowns Elementary. One group traveled by bus and toured the Angola State Penitentiary.

The Day of Experience is part of the faculty formation in the Catholic Social Teaching Program which takes place in each of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart schools in the New Orleans Province. The program consists of five hours of formation/instruction and one full day of volunteering in the community.
