This is the Lower School Chapel Talk given October 16, 2018 - World Food Day - by Ms. Mary Via, Director of Service Learning and External Engagement. As an adult chapel attendee, it was incredibly powerful and I believe, impactful. So much so, we just needed to share it.

Saints are changing the world through the power of relationship.
When I think about our service-learning program here at St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes School, I think of our junior kindergarten students making holiday wreaths for our maintenance staff. I think of third grade students playing bingo with the residents at Lincolnia Senior Center. I think of eighth grade students cheering on athletes at a Special Olympics competition. And I think of eleventh grade students sharing a community dinner with refugee families or playing soccer with the kids at our partner school, St. Paul’s, in Haiti.
