How We Serve
As a Catholic school, we are committed to living and breathing our faith through acts of mercy. We believe it is essential to our Catholic values that we serve our community and those in need. Service provides an opportunity for our elementary and middle school students to understand what it looks like to give to others and to connect their faith with action. The entire Saint Anthony Catholic School body participates in several service projects during the year. These projects are chosen by a team of teachers, often with student input, and involve our entire school community.
Throughout the years, Saint Anthony Catholic School and our students have undertaken a number of service projects in and around our community. We invite you to explore some of our past service projects below.
Saint Vincent DePaul Society
The Society of St Vincent de Paul is an international voluntary organization in the Catholic Church, founded in 1833 for the sanctification of its members by personal service of the poor. As a community, we have collected and donated food for St Vincent DePaul.
Daystar Life Center was founded in 1982 by Monsignor John P. McNulty as an outreach ministry of Saint Mary Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in St. Petersburg, FL. Daystar provides the necessities of life to our neighbors in need in order to alleviate hunger, homelessness, and hopelessness.
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity in Pasco County works by building strength, stability, and self-reliance in partnership with families in need of decent and affordable housing. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage.
Blessed Andre Clinic
The Blessed Andre Clinic is supported by volunteer medical professionals who provide medical screening and follow-up medical care to low-mid income residents of east Pasco County and surrounding areas.
Catholic Charities serves with charity and compassion to promote the sanctity and dignity of all people with God. Catholic Charities offers hope by helping those in need and unites with others in service.
Helping those in need, especially during some of the most difficult times of their lives, such as after a natural disaster, is an act of service that our school is proud of. As a school, we have raised money for a variety of disaster relief funds.
Support for our Heroes (Police, Fire, etc)
We are so thankful for our community heroes — our policemen and women, firefighters, and other emergency personnel are critical to our safe and secure society. As a community, we have raised funds, visited local departments, and written thank you cards for public servants.
