AQMS Students Participate in Day of Service

Last week, 270 of our middle school students went out to various locations within the Rochester community to participate in a day of service. They spent the day cooking, cleaning, gardening, stocking and packaging goods and meeting new people.  We love this day for our young students because it is extremely fulfilling and gives them an opportunity to see places that they may want to do more community service at in the upcoming years. Aquinas students are required to complete community service hours for graduation. Our middle school students also spent time in prayer and reflection at the end of the day and discussed the true meaning of service and the gifts we are each given to help give back to one another.
