FaithWorks Service Activities
FaithWorks is dedicated to providing service learning opportunities to the families of St. Anthony on the Lake.
Jesus told us, “Give and gifts will be given to you,” so this is our response. Our goal is to create a climate in which service is woven into the fabric of our parishioners’ lives. As part of Catholic Social Teaching, we care for all living things created by God. FaithWorks helps families live the Gospel of Jesus Christ by serving others.
Serve one another through love. ~Galatians 5:13
