St. Justin has begun to collaborate with the Room at the Inn day shelter in Bridgeton. Volunteers are needed. We are also accepting donations to help cover the start up costs.
Faith in Action needs your help! Cannot attend the day of service but still want to help? Several of our projects are seeking donations.

The Crew served over 120 meals at FOCUS Gateway City on September 4. This was especially timely since it was also the date of the canonization of Saint Teresa of Calcutta. Mark your calendars! Our next date to serve is Sunday December 4. All are welcome, whether you have teenagers or not.
Members of The Crew, our high school youth ministry, served Sunday Supper at FOCUS Gateway City. Every Sunday, this program serves over 100 meals to those in need in our community. Our next scheduled dates to serve are September 4 and December 4.
Our trip to Washington DC was cancelled due to the giant storm on the East Coast. But we were able to witness for life here in our hometown!
SAJE had a couple more senior citizens who requested help with their yardwork, so we did another yard blitz in December.
Members of The Crew and confirmation candidates boxed food collected by the Cub Scouts so so it could be stored at the St. Louis area food bank. The food we boxed will help feed the less fortunate in our area during the winter months. After we finished boxing food we did a reflection on poverty.
Members of The Crew were joined by some of our 8th graders in a service project. We did yard work at the homes of three senior citizens in our neighborhood. This project was done in partnership with SAJE Senior Ministries.
