C.A.R.E. Catholic Action Responsibility and Education
The goal of the C.A.R.E. program is to create in our children an informed and compassionate attitude toward others that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. The program was created to build in understanding each year, and offers our children a way to make a difference. It teaches that hopeless situations aren’t to be left alone and that each child can make a difference as we are all called to do. Each grade has a focused area of concentration which is age appropriate. In teaching the students to think outside of themselves and to care for others, the environment and all of God’s creations, CARE emphasizes that action is more than giving money to causes; it is about reaching out to others and the community.
