Helias students on a mission in Memphis

Helias students on a mission in Memphis

Feel as blessed as those they went to serve

December 7th, 2010 in News

Helias students wait to pass out cups of water and Powerade at the 6-mile marker of the St. Jude marathon.

When 50 students returned to their classes Monday at Helias Catholic High School from a five-day mission trip to Memphis, Tenn., they were better able to identify with St. Nicholas on his feast day.

"St. Nicholas gave to the people and I honestly feel like I did too," said junior Royce Lauer.

Thursday and Friday of last week, Lauer helped teachers in an immensely diverse junior high school at St. John Baptist De La Salle Catholic School.
