The Christian Service Program
"This I command you: love one another." - John 15:17
In the tradition of St. Vincent DePaul in serving those who are most in need, we look forward to this year's Christian Service Program. St. John gives us the charge from Christ himself, that as we consider ourselves members of a Christian Community, we are reminded that our first command is to love one another. In addition, De Paul Catholic High School's Mission Statement clearly says:
DePaul Catholic High School is a co-educational diocesan college preparatory high school whose mission is to foster the spiritual, intellectual, physical and social growth of its students. DePaul Catholic enables all students to deepen their faith by teaching the doctrine and traditions of the Catholic Church; by strengthening their sense of social justice and societal responsibility, and by helping students form a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The school community also develops young men and women from varying backgrounds into skilled, compassionate citizens who respect the dignity of all people and leaders who are willing to meet the challenges of a complex global society.
- In that spirit, the following are the requirements for this year's CSP:
All students are required to participate in Christian Service during their years at DePaul Catholic High School.
Approved ministries include:
Elderly, Sick & Dying, Disabled Adults, Children, the Poor, and needs from members of the family
and/or a neighbor that has a specific need for assistance/aid.
