Seniors and Service

The Class of 2019 exemplified this pillar well by racking up thousands of service hours during their four years of high school!  

A milestone for our seniors is the Senior Mission Trip, an opportunity to bring the years of Integral Formation full circle with a major apostolic event - serving some of the poorest of the poor. This year, 40 seniors and chaperones flew to Mexico and cared for children and the disabled, and helped build a church.
Members of the class who did not attend the Mission Trip to Mexico spent the week serving in rural Louisiana. They cleaned up an old camp facility, volunteered at a food pantry, soup kitchen, and pregnancy resource center, visited the homebound, and experienced the love of Christ through those they cared for.

This class has also served locally and throughout Atlanta, assisting the poor, caring for disabled children, visiting the elderly, visiting prisoners, donating to the needy, and more.  
All of the graduating Seniors who were in the Pinecrest Wind Symphony will be going on to play music in college:

Isabela Cardona - Georgia State, Trombone
