GMA Cool Schools: Opelousas Catholic

Operation Viking Relief
Posted at 5:00 AM, Oct 28, 2020

Being “service-minded”, Opelousas Catholic School responded quickly to the needs of our neighbors in southwest Louisiana following the devastation from Hurricane Laura.

Senior ministry students led the efforts by immediately organizing “Operation Viking Relief”, a drive to collect needed items such as bottled water and paper items. They had a great response as they attempted to fill up the Viking bus for delivery of these goods.

They also gave up a weekend to work at the damaged Our Lady's Catholic School in Sulphur. This school was attended by the current Opelousas Catholic Principal, Marty Heintz. Making it extra special to the staff, students and families.
