The Tampa Catholic High School faculty and staff began their school year with an untraditional back to school retreat. Following Mass, the entire faculty spent the day volunteering at Metropolitan Ministries, the largest facility in Tampa that serves homeless families and those experiencing poverty in Tampa. This organization feeds the hungry, provides shelter and clothing for the homeless and houses and educates the children of parents living at the shelter and who are going through difficult times. Principal Bob Lees organized the day, and thought it would be a wonderful way to put the Essential Elements of an Edmund Rice Christian Brother Education into practice. The experience was eye opening for all who participated, as they spent the day “standing in Solidarity with those Marginalized by Poverty and Injustice.”
