Christian Service Opportunities

Christian Service Opportunities

Our Director of Campus Ministry arranges and coordinates numerous service opportunities, but it is the student’s responsibility to select opportunities, complete the hours, and turn in the paperwork verifying completion.

Students are required to perform their service hours assisting people or agencies that serve individuals who are in need or are disadvantaged. Hours may also be completed by volunteering at approved community events.

Check the Christian Service Program bulletin board in the office of Campus Ministry for a list of approved events and agencies throughout the year. Any service opportunity not listed must be approved by the Director of Campus Ministry in advance.

Hours may be performed at these kinds of agencies and organizations:
  • Soup kitchens
  • Nursing homes/assisted living facilities
  • Tutoring underprivileged children
  • Food banks
  • Homeless shelters
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Special Olympics
  • Crisis pregnancy center
  • Hospitals
  • Church/school/community fairs (must be approved)
  • Service at Mass (altar server, choir, etc.) Because it is our obligation as Catholics to fully and actively participate in the Sacramental life of the Church, this kind of service qualifies at half-value.
Activities that Do NOT Qualify for Service Hours
  • Any activity where monetary compensation is received
  • Volunteering at Archbishop Hannan events (Open House, athletic camps, helping teachers, etc.)
  • Babysitting in any form (school, Church, family, friends, etc.)
  • Any activity that would be expected of you as a member of a family (visiting Grandma in a nursing home, etc.)
