Jesus proclaimed to his disciples, “Whatever you did for one of the least brothers of mine, you did for me” (Matthew 25:40). Throughout their high school years, the students of Mount de Sales Academy strive to live out this Gospel message and encounter Christ in the hearts of those in most need. Students discover their gifts and the joy of giving as they practice the spiritual and corporal works of mercy within the Mount de Sales community, in the surrounding region, and even beyond our borders.
Each student completes a minimum of 75 hours of person-to-person service to the underserved and underprivileged by the time of her graduation. The goal is to cultivate a lifelong commitment to Christian service in imitation of Jesus who went to the margins to serve the most poor and vulnerable.
