Whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me - Matthew 25:40
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.
Criteria for Service
Service must be done for a non-profit organization.
Student cannot receive compensation for their time.
Notre Dame HS cannot be the non-profit organization.
The expectation is that Christian Service for each year be complete within that school year (eg. 9th Gr. Hours completed by June of 9th grade year!)
