Catholic schools inspired to help Ukrainian families


Many schools throughout the Diocese have been inspired to help the people of Ukraine. Earlier this month, in a consistent effort to inspire service within the Cardinals community, Saint Philip School students were invited to participate in a charity-based dress down day, this time to support relief aid efforts for Ukrainians.
Middle school students formed a bucket brigade to pack carloads full of supplies that were later boxed and shipped to Ukraine. Additionally, the community joined together on Friday, March 25, in union with Pope Francis’ solemn Act of Consecration of humanity to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to pray a school-wide rosary offered on behalf of Russia and Ukraine, pictured above left.

On March 23, St. Paul School in Cranston held a special dress down day for the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.

“We, like everyone else, are saddened by what is happening over there. Hopefully other schools are collecting whatever donations they can to assist you with this terrible crisis happening to those families in Ukraine. We wish we could do more,” said Principal John F. Corry.
