Junior/Senior HS—Service Ministry
An important aspect of our Catholic Central Schools' mission is community service. Our students, faculty, staff, parents and alumni actively support a variety of community efforts. Service Ministry at Catholic Central Jr. /Sr. High School is an opportunity for students to fulfill their service mission—to give back to their community and to follow Our Lord's way. Providing service to others by working with community service-based organizations, the students:
Work with others who have devoted their lives in service to others.
Develop leadership skills as they organize and lead service projects.
Grow in their faith as they answer the call to serve.
During the 2009-2010 school year, our students in grades 7-12 volunteered over 11,000 hours of service for over 70 nonprofit organizations and individuals, valued at over $200,000. (estimated value of a volunteer hour $18.04, Newsweek 7/3/06). Some examples of projects Catholic Central students participate in are:
- Catholic Central Service Day
- The Cookie Project
- J-Term Service Ministry
- Partners in Ministry
