Community service is a huge part of how our students give back to those living in and around our community. Students in grades 7-8 will be required to perform 8 hours of community service, students in grades 9-10 will be required to perform 10 hours of community service, and Confirmation students (grade 11) will be required to perform 8 hours of community service.
I See Jesus in You, You See Jesus in Me: At least half of the hours must be completed in direct service to individuals in need. Serving food at a soup kitchen, assisting at Mass, visiting or assisting tin activities with nursing home residents, helping in the Faith Formation classes or events in service to the children, raking leaves/shoveling snow for a neighbor without pay, etc.
The remaining half may be complete through indirect service. I.E. helping set up/take down for parish functions, assisting to collect food at a food drive, volunteer office work, etc.
We hope to instill a sense of empowerment in our students when it comes to helping others.
