Understanding what it means to be Catholic is a major component of the St. Laurence experience. Students are given opportunities to act on their faith as opposed to just talking about it by reaching out to fellow students, neighbors and people in need.
The Edmund Rice Outreach program serves as students’ outlet into the local community. Every Friday groups of students serve hot meals at the St. Pius soup kitchen.
Helping others happens in the community, but it can also happen at school. In the Peer Ministry program, student leaders work together to plan activities like school masses, prayer services and grade school retreats.

Christian Service Projects, such as clothing drives and volunteer work at area senior citizen homes, allow students to share their blessings with others in need.
Respect and mentoring are key elements found in the St. Laurence Peer Mediation program. When classmates are in need of a helping hand, they can count on their peers to offer advice and guidance in a respectful and peaceful manner.
Retreats, like the three-day KAIROS camp, give juniors and seniors at St. Laurence the chance to look within. Taking the occasional off-campus break from schoolwork allows students to focus on their family, their friends and their faith.
