SERVICE REQUIREMENTS 2011 - 2012
Goal: Students will be challenged to do acts of service leading them to encounter the poor, sick disabled, alienated, dispossessed, or marginalized in the community. These acts of service offer the students the lifelong possibility of charity. They are asked to stretch beyond their comfort zone and to become more aware of the difference each of them can make in the world using their God given talents.
