"How marvelous it would be if … each of us could say:
today I have performed an act of charity towards others!"
~ Pope Francis
Mission Statement: In forming students through “cura personalis,” or care for the whole person, the Christian Service Program exposes students to living out the tenets of Catholic social teaching, rooted in the person of Christ, through service to and solidarity with others.
Student Service Requirements: Students of Judge Memorial High School will complete at least 100 hours of service by the time they graduate. Specific amounts and types of service are expected for each grade level. Students have the opportunity to complete 5 hours each fall through our school wide Christ the King Service Day, for 20 hours total over their 4 years. The requirements for each grade level are listed below:
