The Theology department provides for spiritual development of each student. The program requires formal course work, attendance at all-school Masses and participation in annual grade-level retreats. Optional opportunities for spiritual growth are also provided on an individual and group basis.
Christian Service • 25 hours per year • Grades 9-12
The Christian Service Program allows the student to experience Christianity in a dynamic way by actively participating in a wide variety of service opportunities to their community and those in need. Christian service has its roots in the command of the Gospel to be of service to the needy, poor, and disadvantaged in a direct, personal, helping way.
How do I know if it is Christian Service?
Is what I am doing related to the corporal and spiritual works of mercy? Does my service set a Christian example and witness the Gospel? Would others know that I am a Christian by my actions of service?
Things that do not count as Christian Service:
• Work completed for a pay
• Yard work (mowing the lawn, raking leaves, etc.)
• Walking the dog
• Shoveling snow
• Any activity done as a household chore
