Community Service Requirements 
   Each student will be required to complete a total of 15 hours annually in any of the following areas.  The hours are not required to be in one specific area and may be combined to meet the 15 hour requirement:

  • Garces Memorial High School

Hours must serve the Garces community (i.e. Swim meets, Gala, Band Show, Christmas on Campus, Special People Day, etc.).  

  • Parish/Church

Students are to be serving in a meaningful way that assists a church or parish community.  Serving in a church ministry, assisting in a church fundraiser or assisting with a church service project are all acceptable hours.  Service which occurs while fulfilling a student’s Sunday Obligation (Altar Serving, Choir, Eucharistic Minister) will be prorated at a ratio of 2:1 (one hour of service equates to thirty minutes of Parish Community Service). Working with a Parish School (OLPH, OLG, St. Francis, etc.) will count for Parish Hours.

Non-Profit Community service may only be completed through organizations approved by Garces           Memorial High School. Please see the Director of Admin Operations for an updated list of approved organizations.
