Service Requirements/Time Sheet

Christian Service

St. Vincent Schools engage in service projects in response to Jesus's call to each person to reach out and bring his love, mercy, and healing to the world and to people who are in need. We engage in service with our eyes on Jesus. Guided by the works of St. Vincent de Paul, we meet Jesus in those we serve, we love them and know that in them we have been touched by Jesus. Christian service opens the eyes of young people to a world that is in desperate need of their gifts and talents. We do not believe serving others is extraordinary work, but ordinary work~ something that we should do everyday of our lives.

Christian Service Hours

Requirements 

St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Schools engage in service projects to Jesus's call to each person to each person to reach out and bring his love, mercy, and healing to the world and to people who are in need. We engage in service with our eyes on Jesus. Guided by the works of St. Vincent de Paul, we meet Jesus in those we serve, we love them, and know that in them we have been touched by Jesus. Christian service opens the eyes of young people to a world that is in deperate need of their gifts and talents. We do not believe serving others is extraordinary work, but ordinary work - something that we should do everyday of our lives. 

Each student in grades 9-12 is required to complete twenty hours of Christian Service each academic year. Christian service hours are part of the graduation requirements. A total of eighty hours, (twenty per year in grade 9-12) is required. Students should complete seven hours of service by the end of the first quarter,  a total of fourteen hours by the end of the second quarter, and a total of twenty hours by the end of the third quarter. Today, many scholarships and applications ask you about your service in high school.

If the hours are not completed, the student's Religion grade for that quarter will be lowered one complete letter grade (Ex. an A will become a B). This grade will not be changed and could possibly hurt their chance for eligibility in sports, clubs, or graduation. 

Remember, the student's service hours must be PRE-APPROVED by a teacher at SVHS. We are also requiring that at least 1 of their 7 hours each quarter be done for their school or parish. 

Finally, please remember that the Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors WILL NOT be allowed to do Christian Service for family members or relatives. We hope this will get them more active in serving those who need help: non-profit organizations, schools, parishes, and our community. We do not wish for them to do service for thier employers or people who could easily pay them. St. Vincent came to serve the poor. 

Each student who completes a taotal of 40+ Christian Service hours will receive the Christian Service Award. If a student completes a total of 100 or more hours, they will receive a Christian Service medal at the end of the year.
