CLARK — Students at Mother Seton Regional High School in Clark are members of the Seton Outreach, a service club, whose purpose is to reach out to children and families in surrounding areas in a variety of ways: providing lunch for a soup kitchen, collecting items of clothing and distributing these to a social center, serving as tutors and providing books and other educational materials to the children at Bernice’s Place in Elizabeth.
In addition members of this club have an opportunity to visit places where they can give direct service: Josephine’s Place in Elizabeth, Saint Joseph’s Social Center and the Elizabeth Coalition to House the Homeless, and Center for Hope Hospice, to name a few. Students prepare for their outreach service during Mother Seton’s club activity program. Several activities take place after school as well. Sister Mary Anne Katlack, campus minister at Mother Seton, is the advisor of Seton Outreach.
