SERVICE

The junior class will study the Works of Mercy in Religion class during the unit on the Gospel of Matthew.  Students will have the next several months (until March 9th) to complete 15 direct service hours corresponding to the Works of Mercy. Students may work individually or with a partner. Students are encouraged to participate in school-sponsored service trips such as the monthly trips to the soup kitchen.

 

To get your hours approved, please submit a signed paper copy of the Christian Service form to Ms. Bologa. In addition, log your hours using the "Junior Service Hour Submission" form.

REFLECTION

Students will complete an individual written reflection on a spiritual work of mercy and the way they practiced it during the year. Students will reflect on their direct service in class during the 3rd quarter.
