Christian Service

Christian service allows students to witness and participate in the building of Christ's kingdom. It empowers students to be faithful to our Holy Cross tradition that calls us to "have the competence to see and the courage to act." Thus our service must directly serve the poor and the vulnerable.

Christian Service Project

The Christian Service project is a graduation requirement in the Religious Studies curriculum. Each student is required to complete the hours of service specified below for each year of attendance. The Christian Service Coordinator, Mr. Chris Fahey, must give prior approval to the type of service that each student chooses. This approval is necessary for fulfillment of the service requirement. Students will also participate in a multiple day writing, reflection and sharing program along with the other members of their religion classes in March.
