Many religious education classes participate in service projects, but last year's ninth grade class at Holy Rosary Parish, New Holstein, took it several steps further.

The teens formed a parish Human Concerns Committee, and identified two immediate causes to support in Honduras.

The committee is trying to raise funds for a mission served by Sr. Dorothy Pelt, a Sister of Mercy, who resides in Puerto Cortes.
