Reese Domico '25 recently returned from a week long service immersion trip to Jamaica with Mustard Seed Communities through the youth ministry program at The Catholic Community of Christ Our Light in Cherry Hill. Reese spent a week working directly with special needs children. While in Jamaica, she helped paint the children’s dorms, hosted a fun dance party for the kids, talked, prayed and reflected with them. She especially loved getting to know each of them and their uniqueness and what they do every day. Mustard Seed Communities (MSC) is an international nonprofit dedicated to caring for the most vulnerable populations throughout the developing world. MSC began in 1978 as a home for a handful of children with disabilities who had been abandoned to the streets of Jamaica. Today, MSC provides loving and lifelong care to over 600 children and adults with disabilities, children affected by HIV, and young mothers in crisis across Jamaica, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Zimbabwe, and Malawi. MSC manages sustainable agriculture initiatives and provides education, nutrition, and skills training programs in order to improve the economic, social, and spiritual conditions within marginalized communities. Reese raised over $2,200, which well surpassed her goal of $1,600, to support the Mustard Seed home she served! Reese, you are a servant leader and a role model for your peers. #irishministry #missionofmercy #irishpride #CCHS2025

Honor, Faith, Loyalty and Mercy: what our students embody and who they take with them into the world as Camden Catholic alumni. As our retiring president Mary Whipkey shared with our 2023 graduates, "each student can grow with these three things: a place to belong, someone to believe in them, and a belief system to make sense of the world." Thanks to the support of our alumni and friends, CCHS is able to do this through building community, connections and gospel values for each student and every graduating class. As Mary shared: "The partnership of like minds and values is what sets Catholic education apart from the others and makes Camden Catholic extraordinary! Thank you for working with us to help our students strengthen their roots and give them wings." We encourage you today to make a gift on the last day of our fiscal year to continue this 136 year tradition of giving students community, connections and faith so that they can, in the words of St. Ignatius, "set the world on fire." Donate on our website www.camdencatholic.org or, you can send a check to CCHS, Attn: Annual Fund, 300 Cuthbert Road, Cherry Hill, NJ 08002. #HonorFaithLoyaltyMercy #CamdenCatholic #CCHS #CCHStradition

Lucas Tilman '24 and Jake Lavin '24 attended NJ American Legion Boys State 2023 leadership conference on behalf of CCHS. Boys State educates our youth in the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of American citizenship. Boys State endeavors to provide a foundation for understanding self-government, a rational approach toward the solution of public questions, and a live faith in the ideals and processes of democracy. The program of training and instruction consists of extending the boy-citizen’s acquaintance with the background of American ideals, expanding his knowledge of the underlying principles of government organization, and by means of active participation in the government of Boys State helps him to set up constructive ideals toward all phases of representative government. #southjerseycatholicschools #leadershipatcchs #njboysstate
