"The knowledge of social well-being and of reform is to be learned, not from books, but in climbing the stairs to the poor man’s house, sitting at his bedside, feeling the same cold that pierces him, sharing the secret of his lonely heart and troubled mind.” – Quote from St. Vincent de Paul Society
In the spirit of our school motto, Reverence, Respect, and Responsibility, all 7th and 8th grade students are required to complete 15 hours of Community Service per year as part of their SHS curriculum. These hours are to be completed off campus in a chaperoned activity. Parish activities, either in partner with the School or alone, are considered off campus.
6th grade students are required to complete fifteen hours of Community Service per year as a part of their SHS curriculum. Five of these hours may be completed on campus with the remaining ten hours to be completed off campus in a chaperoned activity.
