In turn, the students are taught valuable lessons of giving back to their communities through the school’s service program and Campus Ministry projects. One of these Campus Ministry projects helps the students experience being young philanthropists. Thanks to this special program sponsored by the Highland Street Foundations Youth Philanthropy Initiative, juniors at Cathedral High School selected two local charities, Casserly House and Sancta Maria, to be recipients of donations totaling $5,000. In a ceremony held at the Cathedral High School Gym on June 11, 2013, the students who participated in the program presented Jim McCarthy from the Casserly House a check for $3,000 and Sharon Dias from Sancta Maria a check for $2,000. Also attending the ceremony was Heather Jack, Executive Director of Future Philanthropists.
