WEST PALM BEACH | The Diocese of Palm Beach is blessed with faithful of all ages who give generously of their time, talent and treasure. For example, 200 Cardinal Newman High School students, parents, staff and alumni participated in a special event Feb. 5 to pack 60,000 meals for people in need.
To close out Catholic Schools Week, the school community partnered with Cross Catholic Outreach to help the food insecure in countries of the Caribbean and Central America.
Tessie O’Dea, relationship development manager with Cross Catholic Outreach of Boca Raton, told the volunteer meal packers: “We’re here today because God is calling us. God is calling each and every one of us to respond to the needs of the poor.”
