St. Aloysius Participates in ‘Love Your Neighbor’ Food Drive

NEW CANAAN—St. Aloysius Knights of Columbus, Confirmation students, and teens from the youth group collected and delivered bags of groceries to the New Canaan Food Pantry.

St. Aloysius has a mission of engaging high school teens in service to their brothers and sisters in need.

St. Aloysius youth ministry are a part of Bishop Caggiano’s Catholic Service Corps which aims to foster Catholic identity by uniting young people to be the face of Christ in service to others.

Service opportunities include: midnight/breakfast runs to feed the homeless in NYC, service in the New Covenant House of Hospitality Soup Kitchen and the Thomas Merton Food Pantry, work with children in need through Breakthrough Options in Norwalk, Thorpe Family Residence in the Bronx, Missionaries of Charity in Bridgeport, relationships with individuals with special needs through St. A’s Buddies ministry and MORE!

Mission trip opportunities are offered twice a year, as are special dramatic presentations through Religious Education/Vacation Bible School and the annual presentation of the Living Stations of the Cross during Lent for the parish.

It is the desire of St. A’s youth ministry to bring teens together with the many faith filled young Catholics in the diocese who are striving to life a Christ-centered life.

Information on upcoming opportunities can be found on the parish website at: www.starcc.com/Youth_Ministry, in the bulletin and on the St. Aloysius Catholic Church Youth Ministry Facebook page.
