On behalf of Central Catholic Jr-Sr High School students, Robert Storey, the director of campus ministry, presented LUM with a check for $1,231.43 in support of Homeless Services at Lafayette Urban Ministry.

As a part of Catholic Schools Week, the students raised the funds during the “Change Drive,” where they collected change for LUM. 

In addition to the Change Drive, the students collected items and created “care packages.” They also invited Briton Weise, LUM Emergency Shelter director, to speak via Zoom to the students about homelessness.

LUM is blessed to have such active Catholic schools in Lafayette with students and staff committed to supporting the good work of Lafayette Urban Ministry.

Emergency Shelter

Central Catholic Students Focus on Homelessness

LUM Presentation, Change Drive & Care Packages

As a part of Catholic Schools Week 2021, Briton Weise, LUM Emergency Shelter director, was invited to speak via Zoom to the students at Central Catholic Jr-Sr High School about homelessness and homeless services at LUM. Robert Storey, the director of campus ministry at Central Catholic, and the campus ministry staff coordinated two events benefitting the LUM Emergency Shelter.

The entire student body collected items and created “care packages” and also participated in a “change drive.” The care packages contain a variety of items including gloves, hats, scarves, socks, hand & toe warmers, and prayer cards. The change drive is on track to raise more than $1,000 for the shelter as well. The care packages are available to all of the shelter guests each night and LUM clients. They are also available on a “clothes line” hanging outside the LUM Office (pictured).

Jubilee Christmas

Central Catholic Junior High Students Support LUM

The Central Catholic Junior High Student Council sponsored a “Spirit Day” fundraiser (students pay to not wear their uniforms) and chose LUM & Jubilee Christmas as the recipient.

They raised $638.76, which will be used to assist the Jubilee Christmas events at the Catholic churches — the Church of the Blessed Sacrament, St. Lawrence, St. Mary Cathedral, and St. Thomas Aquinas.

The student council members are also baking cookies for the Jubilee Christmas families at St. Thomas Aquinas. 

Please join us in thanking these junior high school student leaders for their generosity and commitment to helping others.
