Cardinal Mooney Catholic High School Community Service Program
In support of the Cardinal Mooney Catholic High School mission, we emphasize service as a way to help students come to an awareness of their responsibilities to the local and global community. Volunteering in the community helps the common good of all and through service to others, students demonstrate character, respect for self and others, integrity, and compassion. Responding to those in need is foundational to living Gospel Values.
“For I was hungry…and you…?”
"To teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ” and "To create a community where service is valued and celebrated” are essential components of Cardinal Mooney’s Mission.
In the Gospels, Jesus makes it very clear that reaching out to the poor and those counted as “less” in society are crucial elements of the Gospel. Through His own life giving death and resurrection, Jesus witnessed to the centrality of giving. Jesus made it clear that we, His followers, must do the same.
Cardinal Mooney Catholic High School is committed to creating an environment where service to the poor and disenfranchised is valued and integrated into the daily life of all. The Community Service Program is meant to expose people to the varied needs of others and to discover ways we can serve. Cardinal Mooney requires every student to complete at least 100 hours of service during their four years at Cardinal Mooney.
Types of service include fundraisers, walk-a-thons, parish and community service projects, and hours completed for Cardinal Mooney Catholic High School through service clubs. Service must be done through pre-approved not-for-profit service agencies, hospitals, nursing homes, or religious faith communities.
