CATHOLIC SCHOOLS GIVE BACK: Sacred Hearts School
Maui Beach Clean-Up
After an historic and cultural journey to Moku‘ula and Hui o Wa‘a Kaulua in Lahaina, Sacred Hearts School students from the junior high grade levels cleaned the beach at Polanui Hiu as part of their Mālama Honua (“to care for our Island Earth”) efforts.
Sacred Hearts School wanted to close out the Year of Mercy with a school-wide service project to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked and shelter the homeless. The school partnered with its Parish to raise around $6,000, reaching their goal of exceeding last year’s contribution of $5,000, to two organizations.
Ten percent was donated to the “A Cup of Cold Water,” an organization on Maui that delivers bottled water and basic necessities to the homeless.
The remaining 90% percent of the collection was given the the Sisters of the Missionaries of Faith to help them care for the children in their orphanage and school in Myanmar, Burma. This charity is special to the school community because two new school teachers, Sr. Rovy and Sr. Mary, are a part of this order and have worked or been involved with this orphanage and school.
