December 6 is the celebration of St. Nicholas, the first Santa Claus. He was a bishop who provided for the needs of others, especially for children. In the spirit of St Nicholas, Saint Dominic students collected over 15 duffle bags and a suitcase worth of new school supplies to be sent to an orphanage in Honduras.
“Though we are happy when we receive a gift, this St. Nicholas Day our students experienced the greater joy that comes from giving to others,” states Sister John Agnes Suh, principal of Saint Dominic School. The school supplies will be sent to an orphanage in Honduras where Saint Dominic School alumnus, Allison Zilka (Class of 2003) is currently serving as Volunteer Coordinator with the Florida-based missionary organization, Farm of the Child. In Honduras, Zilka assists in coordination of volunteers who serve the children in the orphanage, as well as, teaching the children.
Saint Dominic School is a Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade elementary school located at 420 E. Briarcliff Road in Bolingbrook. The mission of the school is to prepare students for the future by providing a quality education that is inspired by faith and driven by excellence.
