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 develop "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.  Reflection is an integral part of the service experience. As such, students participate in a multiple day writing, reflection and sharing program along with the other members of their religion classes in March.

The guidelines for the Christian service hour program have been temporarily changed and will be in effect for the 2020-21 school year only. 

The following letters outline the Christian service hour program for the 2020-21 school year.

Contact Mr. Chris Fahey with any questions.
