In our Catholic schools we see the opportunity for students to grow in their faith life. The following describes how Christian Community Service offered in our Catholic schools meets the provincial mandate requiring every student to complete 40 hours of Community Service in order to be granted the Ontario Secondary School Diploma.
Students are strongly encouraged to perform a minimum of 10 hours of service per year. Themes in the religious Education program are used as students develop in their understanding of what it means to be Disciples of Christ. This theological reflection on Christian Community Service placements is supported by Religion teachers. Christian Community Service is a minimum requirement in a life-long process of understanding our role as followers of Christ in the modern world.
