Christian Service Program
Service to others, especially those most in need, is essential to the Christian life. In the Gospels, Jesus commanded his followers to "love your neighbor as yourself" (Mt 22:39). As a Catholic Christian high school founded by the Trinitarian Order, DeMatha Catholic High School strives to form its students' moral and spiritual selves into young men who sacrifice their time and offer their God-given gifts to the community. Our Trinitarian influence and heritage commands that we work for "liberty for the captives": those who are imprisoned by poverty, homelessness, sickness, etc.
Therefore, DeMatha Catholic High School students are required to perform Christian Service. The Campus Ministry Office oversees this program by organizing group service activities, assisting in the placement of students in service locations, guiding students in reflection on their service, and compiling the number of hours completed by each student. Completion of service hours and the service reflection paper are graduation requirements.
*NEW* Christian Service Hours System
To submit completed hours: students ONLY can access the form from their DeMatha email accounts. No supervisor signature is necessary, but students MUST provide contact information so Mrs. Bright can verify the hours via phone or email.
Instructions for system: includes how to submit and look up hours.
We are going paper-less! Please use the instructions above to clarify how to use this new system. We appreciate your patience with our new procedures.
Christian Community Service Hours will continue to be emailed to students' DeMatha email and parents' email once a month.
***Students and Parents were sent an email from Mrs. Bright with instructions and links on June 15, 2016. Hours can only be submitted via students' DeMatha accounts***
