Modeling our Marist Ideals: Loving and Serving Others

Modeling our Marist Ideals: Loving and Serving Others

Central Catholic's faculty and staff model our Marist ideals through their compassion and commitment to service.  

As part of the Faculty & Staff Retreat held on Holy Thursday (April 14), they donated over 200 sandwiches and other goods to our neighbors at Lazarus House Ministries and Daybreak Shelter, providing a wonderful example of what it means to serve others and be Marist!

About Lazarus House Ministries

Since opening its doors as an emergency homeless shelter in 1983, Lazarus House has been breaking the cycle of poverty in the Merrimack Valley region.

Their food and clothing programs assist families by stretching their dollars so they can afford rent, heat, and utilities. Housing provides a safe haven for homeless families and individuals.

Lazarus House Ministries was co-founded by a Marist Brother and member of the CCHS Faculty & Administration: Bro. Thomas Petite, FMS.
