St. Pius V Parish students are "Messengers of Memory"
Catholic Social Teaching is an important part of the curriculum at St. Pius V Parish School. In studying the seven themes of Catholic Social teaching, the junior high students study the Holocaust and participate in Chapman University’s annual Holocaust Art and Writing Contest. This year’s contest invited students to listen to the testimonies of Holocaust survivors, find a meaningful message, and express this message (via art, prose, poetry or film) to others. Out of over 7,000 entries, three of our students (Shannen D., Jesmin M., and Sabrina P.) were selected for recognition and were invited to the ceremony at Chapman University. Sabrina’s short film, “I Will Never Know”, was a finalist in the film category. Her film was inspired by the testimony of Sally Zelinski Roisman, whom she was able to meet at the ceremony. Congratulations! You make us very proud!
