MUNCIE, Ind.—Students from St. Michael Catholic School, a part of the Muncie Catholic Pastorate, recently participated in their first annual Archangel’s in Action Day. Students, teachers, and helpers volunteered across Muncie, serving our brothers and sisters in Christ in the community.

All grades, preschool through 8th, were involved in the day. Our students in Kindergarten through 2nd grade stayed onthe St. Michael campus, making 250 sack lunches for the Soup Kitchen of Muncie and 172 hygiene kits for Muncie Mission, while our preschoolers painted river rocks and artwork for Bethel Pointe Nursing Home, a cause championed by preschool teacher, Mrs. Amy Harris, in memory of her mother.

Our 3rd through 8th grade classes spread out across Muncie, going to A Better Way to make cookies and cards of affirmation for the residents, Second Harvest Food Bank, where they sorted 4,000 pounds of potatoes!, First Choicefor Women to help clean toys and sort supplies, and Maring-Hunt Library where they helped clean and plant flowers inthe outdoor spaces. In an email from Missty Drollinger, Volunteer Coordinator at A Better Way, she noted that “They (the students) came with so much energy and excitement that it gave me a boost this morning,” and welcomed them back in the future.

The students and staff of St. Michael Catholic School were honored to be able to serve their community in this way and look forward to making this an annual tradition.
