Bridging the Gap is a collaboration between students and residents at the Sylvan Lake Bethany Care Centre. The goal is to help improve the well-being for all those involved by showing that regardless of age, everyone can make a difference in another person’s life. This project was given $1,400.
The project enhanced Catholic education by providing students with the opportunity to participate in a community ministry that impacts many people. Seniors at the local care centre looked forward to visits from our students, especially since many do not have regular visitors. This initiative also gave the residents a chance to provide a meaningful contribution to others. This project exposed children to the eight characteristics of Catholic identity by having a strong focus on humanness, community and sacramentality. This project also helped to prepare students to live as Christian leaders who promote the moral teachings of Jesus Christ.
