“Penny-A-Day” Project Shares Goals of Father Arrupe

Two alumni of the OLQM Catholic Academy Class of 2016, who are now students at Regis High School, are aiming to collect $300 for the poor at Sunday Masses on August 13/14.

Aaron Adviento (ten years at OLQM) and Craig Newton (five years at OLQM) are committed to the Arrupe Project, named after Pedro Arrupe who was Father General of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuit Order) from 1965-1983. Their goal, like Father Arrupe’s, is to help in small ways those in need in our communities by putting Catholic social teaching into practice.

All spare change that’s put into the second collection basket on August 13/14 will go to the Arrupe Project for the students to donate to the local St. Vincent de Paul Society.

The Arrupe Project is part of the REACH program at Regis HS, which prepares young men for leadership and service in their community.
