Something unique about the Catholic school experience is the strong relationships between our schools, parishes, and the greater community. SS. Philip and James demonstrate this well. Recently, fourteen parishioners gathered to craft over 500 items. With these items, SS. Philip and James students (grades TK-8) assembled “Mugs o Love”. Boxes of mugs were donated and filled with a tissue holder, original handcrafted piece, cocoa, and candy cane. The students decorated personalized “Charity is Love” cards to be placed inside. These one-of-a-kind gifts were delivered to local nursing homes, homebound members in the community, and most importantly people in need of a smile.
