Rosarian Students ‘Carve’ Halloween Memories with The Lord’s Place Children
For the 8th consecutive year, Rosarian Academy students were blessed to spend a few hours participating in Halloween activities with the children who reside at The Lord’s Place Family Campus on Wednesday, October 23. The school’s eighth-grade National Junior Honor Society students organized the spooktacular fun. The Rosarian students paired with The Lord’s Place residents to carve and paint pumpkins, paint each other’s faces, and play games.
This annual event brings joy to both the children of The Lord’s Place and the Rosarian students and has become a tradition and meaningful partnership that Rosarian hopes to continue for many years to come.
Through a school-wide effort, over 50 pumpkins were collected and donated. Community service is an integral part of a Rosarian student’s education. From preschool to 8th grade, children experience opportunities to work in service of others. Students recognize that every person has the power to make a positive difference.
The Lord’s Place Housing Programs provide shelter for homeless men, women and children and help residents identify the issues that led to their homelessness. The Lord’s Place gives their residents the tools they need to stabilize their lives, while providing safe homes so they can thrive. Currently, approximately 40 families with 50 children reside at the Family Campus. For more information, visit www.thelordsplace.org.
