St. Aloysius School, Yoder, Embarks On Day Of Giving Campaign

St. Aloysius Catholic School, Yoder, will participate in the Many Gifts, One Nation: A Day of Giving to Catholic School campaign. The campaign is coordinated through the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA). The Day of Giving is a 24-hour period beginning Jan. 30 at 9 a.m. and lasting through Jan. 31 at 9 a.m. Donations will be accepted online at St. Aloysius’ goal is to raise $30,000.

“We work together forming saints and scholars in Christ,” said St. Aloysius Principal Tina Voors. “There is a great calling in this vocation of education to cooperate with God’s plan to form each child spiritually and academically.”

She said St. Aloysius School is committed to giving the students the best education in a solidly Roman Catholic environment.

“This formation takes time and financial resources,” she added. “Funds donated will help provide new technology that will not only help our teachers better serve each and every student in the classroom, but will also improve the safety of our school by installing new tools and equipment. A safe environment, the right tools and gifted dedicated teachers are blessings God has given to us in service of our students and their families.”

Twenty years ago, St. Pope John Paul II said to an audience of Catholic educators in New Orleans: “Yours is a great gift to the Church, a great gift to your nation.”

Countless people in our country have been blessed by the many gifts of Catholic schools. However, many adults have lost touch with their local Catholic school community. It is time for those people who have been impacted by St. Aloysius School to reconnect with the community that gave them so much, and give back.

With this recognition in mind, the National Catholic Educational Association is pleased to present the online giving campaign: Many Gifts, One Nation: A Day of Giving to Catholic Schools.

This is a time for individuals to give back to their local Catholic school. By leveraging social media, this national day of philanthropy and camaraderie will invite all people, across the country, who have been impacted by Catholic school education in ways big and small to financially donate at a local level.
