Care of the Elderly

Just before All Hallows Eve, over sixty of our high school students traveled to Queen of Peace Residence in Queens Village for our annual Halloween party. Both Marianist High Schools spent the afternoon sharing their costumes and stories with the aged poor.
Our Latin school painted hallowen pumpkins for the event and the high school created hand-made Halloween cards.As Brothers of Mary, we find in Mary a model for our own service to others. Truly, this is the meaning of consecrated life: to serve others as Mary did, with an eager and unselfish love; to minister to human suffering in disregard of personal suffering; and to labor tirelessly for the spread of Jesus Christ and His Gospel, both in our own hearts and in the hearts of all men.
