“Even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve. And to give His life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:28. Serving others in our community is not only the focus of Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School’s annual Lenten Day of Service, but has been a part of the school’s mission since 1873. 


With the help of Hands on River Region over 300 Montgomery Catholic students in grades nine through twelve and faculty members spent a combined total of over 900 hours volunteering the morning of March 26. The students worked at 15 locations around the River Region performing various tasks such as spending time with elderly residents,  cleaning up trails at YMCA’s Camp Grandview and Camp Chandler, cleaning up the Remount Cemetery with the Montgomery Clean City Commission, and completing projects on campus at Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School among many other works of service throughout the community.
