Social Justice


“This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.”

2 Corinthians 9:12

In accordance with the church’s social teachings and the St. Angela Merici Parish School Student Learning Expectations, all students shall be given the opportunities to provide service within our local community. It is our responsibility to give back to our community with our time and talent to make a difference.

The charities our school focuses on for the school year:

October : Cancer Research Collaboration

CANCER RESEARCH COLLABORATION is centered around finding

a cure to eliminate cancer and creating a cancer-free tomorrow. St. Angela students will be supporting this charity through fundraisers and will also be making chemo bags for breast cancer patients.

November : Second Harvest Food Bank

SECOND HARVEST FOOD BANK serves to feed the poor and homeless in Orange County.  Students will support their food drive and mission to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.


December
: Operation Santa Claus

OPERATION SANTA CLAUS provides gifts and toys to needy children in Orange County during the holiday season. Our students collect gifts, toys and money to donate to the drive. Our collection takes place during a Christmas prayer service.  Our 2nd and 8th grade students walk to our local fire department to deliver the toys.

January : St. Jude’s Children Hospital

Our students support the ST. JUDE’S CHILDREN HOSPITAL through fundraising and prayers.

February : JumpRope For Heart

Together with the AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION, our school children raise money by jump roping and exercising during one designated day.  Teaching our students to stay healthy is very important along with educating them about heart disease.

March : Boys and Girls Club

The BOYS AND GIRLS CLUBS provide a safe place for kids when school is out.  Our school partners with the Brea Boys and Girls Club, and will conduct a fundraiser in May to help them serve the youth in the area.

April : Stand Up for Kids

STAND UP FOR KIDS is an organization that serves to support homeless youth across the United States for over twenty years. Our students fundraise for the local Orange County Chapter.

May : Relay for Life

The RELAY FOR LIFE is a vital fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, raising money for research and testing to make a global impact on cancer. With the surrounding communities, students participate in and fundraise for this weekend-long event held on our campus.
