In its teachings, the members are emphatically reminded of their duties to God, to their country, and to their fellow beings. They are urged to portray, by precept and example, their belief in the “Golden Rule” and by conforming to the virtues inherent in Truth, Faith, Wisdom, and Charity they can prove to others the fondness promulgated by the Order. The extent of its charitable work and overall benevolence is limited only by the opportunities that exist, and the ability to secure adequate funding. Its main philanthropic project is the Amaranth Diabetes Foundation.

- __Student group travels to Europe to pay visit to former foreign exchange students July 23, 2014
Six Boardman, Fitch, and Cardinal Mooney students, accompanied by Sieglinde and Larry Warren, exchange coordinators, and Cameron Carter, a YSU Education Senior, recently returned from Germany where they stayed in the homes of students they had hosted this past fall. Hennef is located on the Rhine River in west Central Germany near Cologne.
The German hosts planned many activities for their American guests. Among these activities were visiting the Mayor of Hennef, Mr. Pipke; an all day trip on the Rhine which included viewing the Seven Hills of the Rhineland, the town of Siegburg, as well as the former German capital, Bonn. They toured the city of Cologne and viewed the city from a bridge on the Rhine River. The group also had the opportunity to spend a day in the German capital, Berlin, where they walked along the remnant of the Berlin Wall and visited the Checkpoint Charlie Museum. While in Germany, the students also had the opportunity to experience the World Cup excitement with their hosts. This is the ninth year that the exchange with the Gesamtschule in Hennef has taken place.
A tenth exchange is planned with the same German school in November of 2014 with 8-12 German students and two teachers arriving for the Thanksgiving holiday. The goal of the exchange is to provide an opportunity for the German and Mahoning Valley students to experience each other’s culture in their home and school.
