The ArchCare Parish Integration Team along with ArchCare TimeBank members participated in a Family Day sponsored by Brilla College Prep on E 144th Street in the Bronx. The Prep is an outstanding educational community centered on a K-3 charter school grounded in the classical tradition designed to develop students into young men and women of good character.
ArchCare connected with the school through “El Camino” a dynamic afterschool Catholic catechetical program that is staffed by lay professionals and Catholic volunteer Fellows under the auspices of Seton Education Partners.
On May 16, this very diverse team presented a street fair in front of the Brilla School and the neighboring St. Pius V Parish. The Fair was open to the public and served community members of all ages with a special emphasis on families with children. ArchCare was present as hundreds of people passed by to view our material and participate in children’s activities jointly staffed by our Marketing, TimeBank and Parish Integration team members. By offering crafts including make your own hair clip, book mark and pinwheel, it goes without saying that we were a popular stop!
