St. Michael Students Create Love Bags for the Homeless in and around the Greater Baton Rouge Area
Freshman students in Mrs. Robin Haile’s Religion I class have spent their holiday season with a mission — to prepare a “love bag” for the homeless population in our area. The “love bags” are filled with food, toiletries, scarves, and rosaries. The goal of this mission is to help feed, provide needed supplies, and witness the gospel of Jesus Christ to the homeless population in the Baton Rouge area.
Over the past three weeks, students have spent their lunch periods in the campus ministry room at St. Michael High School to help prepare hand made rosaries to place in these “love bags”. Campus Minister, Emily Froeba stated “We’re not just giving food, we’re giving hope and sharing the love of Christ with others who are in need. The mission of St. Michael High School is to foster the spiritual, intellectual, and personal development of young people as committed disciples of Christ. These love bags are a great way for us to live our our mission statement.”
The students, faculty, and staff at St. Michael High School will keep the “love bags” in their vehicles hand have been tasked with distributing them to the homeless around the Baton Rouge area.
