ALL students are 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:
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.
Hours must serve the Garces community (i.e. Christmas on Campus, Special People Day, Swim Meets, Gala, Band Show, etc.).
Non-Profit Community service may only be completed through organizations approved by Garces Memorial High School. Please see the Campus Ministry Office for more information.
