For the fourth straight year, over 300 students at St. Agnes Catholic School dedicated a day of service, Rams Reaching Out Day, to benefit the many ministries of Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas.

Divided among the 21+ programs at Catholic Charities, a large group of students sorted over 1600 lbs of food at the Hope Distribution Center, while others sorted and tagged clothing for sale at TurnStyles Thrift Stores. All-in-all the St. Agnes students served over 600 hours helping our neighbors in need!

St. Agnes staff, clergy, parents and students – preschool through 8th – contributed their time, talent and treasure, proving there is no limit when it comes to helping others.

In the News:

Jim Cunningham from KMBZ 980 was at school in the morning and his story ran multiple times on the radio throughout the day.
