Apostolic Ministry

Apostolic Ministry Service Program

 

Each year, Holy Family High School students are asked to deepen their understanding of the role of Christian service through the Corporal Works of Mercy. This program is designed to include all areas of life from the home to the broader community. Fulfillment of service hours is mandatory for graduation, students will not receive their diploma if their Apostolic Ministry requirements are not completed in full. Apostolic Ministry projects vary from year to year and have specific requirements and due dates. Service experiences include working within one’s family, school, parish or church, and non-profit organizations that work with marginalized individuals and those in need. Students who fail to complete their hours each year will have their report cards and/or transcripts withheld until their service hours are satisfactorily completed. Service hours will be documented using verification sheets that can be found below. Questions regarding an organization may be directed to the student’s Theology teacher or the Campus Ministry office.

 

Students must show how their hours of service address the Corporal Works of Mercy.
