Christians. In. Action. (C.I.A.)

“Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in their midst.” -Matthew 18:20

Mission Statement: Christians in Action is a group of high school students committed to real world application of faith, service, and community. All are welcome!

The C.I.A. engages in various services, social and educational events, and activities meant to help grow our high school students’ faith through hands-on experiential learning. The C.I.A. is open to all students in high school. The C.I.A. is also open to all high school students of any faith, and members do not need to be parishioners of St. Matthias. Indeed everyone is welcome!
