It is through the ministry of Christian service that the student is empowered to reach out to those in society who are in need. This experience helps the student to move beyond himself and into the hearts of the poor and marginalized of society. The foundation for service in the life of the Christian adolescent is the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy.

Senior Year: (20 hrs.) Senior service would be completed in conjunction with the Social Justice course. Each senior would be required to research, create and implement a service project based upon social teachings of the Catholic Church as articulate by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). The completion of the Project will be graded Pass/Fail. This allows for the actual project to be performed the 2nd Semester.
Once a student has completed a Service Activity, it must be recorded on the Service Credit Form.
