Luke 12:48 “To whom much has been given, much will be required”
Houston, TX – December 18th – While fifteen percent of the families of St. Cecilia Catholic School were impacted by the flooding from Hurricane Harvey, the school was very fortunate not to have any damage to the facilities. However, not all of the schools in the Archdiocese were that fortunate.
This year, as St. Cecilia began planning for their participation in the annual Archdiocesan “Steps for Students” fundraiser, the school’s administration, with the support of school board, made the decision to give 100% of the money raised from this year’s “Steps for Students” to one of the Archdiocesan grade schools whose facilities were directly impacted by flooding from Hurricane Harvey.
“After Hurricane Harvey, we received financial support for our families from other schools all over the country. We have been grateful for their support as it has allowed us to provide assistance to our affected families. As we began our planning for Steps for Students, we saw a need and an opportunity for us to “pay it forward” by donating our Steps for Students fundraising dollars to one of our fellow Archdiocesan Catholic grade schools whose facilities were directly affected by the flooding. St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School had significant flooding damage to their facilities, and we want to partner with them in getting their community back into their school. We are excited to have this opportunity to share the resources our community generously and historically provides to us. In the spirit of our mission of preparing students “for an adult life of commitment and service,” we are leading by example here at St. Cecilia Catholic School.”
