Every Day Is A Day To Serve At La Salle
Students and faculty live the Lasallian Mission daily through multiple service trips throughout the school year.
This week, La Salle's daily service programs kicked into high gear with students engaging in one of the nearly dozen service ministries available to them. Every day of the school week and on weekends as well, La Salle students are provided with the opportunity to serve in the community through a variety of ministries.
Through these initiatives, students visit with the elderly at The Villa or Artman Home; cook the hundreds of casseroles needed to support our other ministries; tutor and mentor grade school children in Kensington at Visitation BVM or La Salle Academy; share a meal and some conversation with someone living on the streets or suffering from addiction through Street Outreach or Sarnelli House; become a friend and trainer for a developmentally disabled resident at Triest House; participate in a speaker series sponsored by The Human Rights Forum; or serve meals on weekends at Manna on Main Street (Mother's Club) of Face to Face (Men of La Salle).
More than the service provided, La Salle students learn and experience first-hand the value and benefits of helping those in our community who face challenges on a daily basis, by simply giving of the time. In addition, while there are no service hour requirements for students at La Salle, through these weekly ministries, several seasonal programs, athletic team service initiatives, and the summer service immersion program, approximately 85% of all La Salle students engaged in a service ministry last year.
