The mission of Brother Martin High School is to form young people through a holistic education that fosters academic excellence in a caring, disciplined community which integrates Catholic tradition and the charism of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart to meet the needs of a changing world.
Students from throughout the Archdiocese met at Jesuit early in the morning for juice and doughnuts. Archbishop Gregory Aymond CJ ’67 set the tone for the day with a beautiful prayer service inspired by the words of Dr. King. He referred to teenagers today as “the young Church of New Orleans.”
Then the group dispersed through the community to do service. Mr. Baier led a group to Marrero, where they worked in the garden at Cafe Hope, on Barataria Blvd. Ms. Sterwart led a group to the Second Harvest Food Bank, which serves all of south Louisiana. Brother Martin students were joined by students from St. Augustine and Archbishop Chapelle to complete a massive clean-up of the huge warehouse.
