PURPOSE: The purpose of fulfilling Christian service hours while attending CCHS is to practice the teachings of Jesus Christ and to actively live out our CCHS Mission "To witness to the Gospel." Service has always been a hallmark of Christianity and an outreach to the community at large.
Our service hours are modeled after the Gospel of Matthew 25 where Jesus says “Truly, I tell you, whatever you did for the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”- Matthew 25:40
REQUIREMENTS: Every student is required to complete a minimum of 25 service hours per year of which 5 hours should be Works of Mercy hours by the deadline. A CCHS graduate student would have completed a minimum of 100 hours during their 4 years of High School.
EXPECTATIONS: Students are expected to fulfill the precepts of the Church, Corporal/Spiritual Works of Mercy, and support Catholic Educational events for their service hours. Students are called to freely share their time, treasure, and talent without receiving any payment, reward, or monetary donation for their service hours. Students may not serve their immediate family, but rather are expected to serve their school, parish, local and global communities, and non-profit organizations.
