Walk in Sister’s Shoes is a school initiative to raise money to support the St. Katharine Drexel Catholic School Fund.
The money raised through Walk In Sisters Shoes helps support the parish schools in our diocese who have less than others. All across our diocese there are children learning about Jesus in classrooms lacking in some of the resources enjoyed in other schools.
Our students are asked to support each other. Catholic school students in every school are given the opportunity to help each other, to learn about the life and legacy of St. Katharine Drexel, and to raise funds for the St. Katharine Drexel Catholic School Fund. The results have been astounding. Since 2010, close to $390,000 has been raised to support the St. Katharine Drexel Fund through the efforts of students.
Catholic school students are clearly learning lessons that go beyond reading, writing, science, and math, to learning that love of neighbor and caring for each other is just as, or perhaps, more important. They are recognizing the need of others, and have taken action to help by supporting the Saint Katharine Drexel Catholic School Fund through Walk in Sister’s Shoes.
