Crusader CareFest Shines Caritas on Our Community


Tampa Catholic Theology Department has taken ownership for a week-long drive to share service and charity among several organizations. The annual Crusader CareFest event demonstrates the charism of what it means to be a Crusader.

Each Theology class chose an organization to spotlight and serve: 

  • Mr. Ikhwan – collected canned foods for St Vincent de Paul Food Pantries.
  • Mr. Rocha – collected materials and made blankets for the homeless in Tampa
  • Mr. Ittig – Had his students write letters of encouragement to seminarians at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit and Moreau Seminary at Notre Dame.
  • Mr. Aeschbach - collected baby supplies such as diapers and clothing for Foundations of Life Pregnancy Center
  • Mrs. Norden - wrote thank you letters for Honor Flight "mail call" that blesses Veterans on their way back home after visiting US war memorials.
  • Mrs. Masters - collected toys for CelebrateBirthdays benefiting foster families
  • Miss Wunderlich - wrote penpal letters to our mission school, Fe Y Alegría in Lima, Peru
