St. Mary High School focuses not only on the academic, athletic, and extracurricular development of our students, but also on their spiritual and moral development. To achieve this, all students are REQUIRED to complete a total of 10 Hours of Christian Service PER YEAR at St. Mary High School.
What is Christian Service? Simply put, any effort made to selflessly give on one’s time, talent, and love to another person(s) is Christian Service. While some activities are based in human kindness, such as babysitting a child, this is not an example of Christian Service. Christian Service calls for all students to spread the love of God through both small and great feats.
The following rules are being implemented for the 2020-2021 School Year concerning Service Hours:
To follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ is sometimes a difficult task, as it was for many of His Apostles, yet the challenge is what makes the entire process rewarding for the students of St. Mary High School and all members of the Body of Christ. We hope that these Service Hours instill in our students a desire to continually help those in need and to spread the Gospel message throughout their life.
