OUR MISSION TO SERVE:
Notre Dame’s mission statement challenges us to prepare young people “to serve in an ever-changing world.” Our Christian Service program provides a hands-on application of the Christian values emphasized in our Religious Studies classes. We believe that service to one’s community is an integral part of Christian life and therefore, our program is a graduation requirement.
Each student is obligated to complete the following for organizations on our pre-approved list or with the prior approval of our Campus Minister, Deacon Walter Szczesny:
9th grade: 10 hours*
10th grade: 12 hours
11th grade: 15 hours
12th grade: 20 hours
*Minimum of 5 hours must be with a church or church-based organization.
All hours must be properly documented and submitted to the Campus Ministry office.
Each student will be required to write a reflection paper each year under the direction of the Theology department.
If you are unsure if your service opportunity qualifies, check with Deacon Walter Szczesny, Campus Minister before completing it.
