Student of the Week: April 21, 2020

So many Carroll students spent time during their Spring Break finding creative, new ways to help others and to celebrate Easter while in quarantine.  Our students are truly one-of-a-kind in serving others, being generous and thoughtful, and finding ways to express their faith and keep the spirit of Easter in their hearts from their homes.  I love our Carroll students and community and consider it a true blessing to minister here.  Some of my students shared their Spring Break activities with me:

Drew Maxwell '21: helping his aunt at a local park

Maggie Ollier '21: delivering food & Easter baskets to friends

Sam Reichman '21: volunteering at Ascension Church

All of Logan Druck’s (Class of 2021) friends making her birthday special

Josie Eckhart '22: remembering the Passion of Christ on Good Friday & playing Scrabble with the Mysteries of the Passion.

Ryan Seltsam '21: watching a virtual Easter Mass
