Service Learning Experience – Grades 8-11

As part of the service component of their formation, students in Grades 8-11 are asked to determine an area (or more) of service that they will complete during the Religious Education year.

There are projects that will benefit the parish directly.  There are also very specific experiences chosen to get the student out of their comfort zone and see what real poverty looks like. 

All of these opportunities are meant to lead our youth to ongoing service within the parish and larger community.  It is not about the amount of hours that are put in, but the experience that those hours provide.  In many cases, it moves students out of their “comfort zone” and introduces them to a world much different than their own. 

No matter what they choose, it is meant to remind them that as Christians we are called to love others as Christ loves us and that every time we serve the needs of others, we are serving Christ himself.

An email will be sent at the beginning of the Religious Education year with a list of available service experiences, asking parents to take time to look the list over as a family, talk about each option, and prayerfully reflect on which project your student will choose.

As part of this component, the students will also be asked to reflect on their service.  They will required to submit a form directing their reflection of their service experience(s).  These completed forms will be submitted to their catechists.  After the catechist has read and commented on them, the catechists will submit the completed forms to the Youth Minister for evaluation and recording.
