All CEC students are required to serve their local communities in the spirit of Christian service and fellowship. School Ministry is developing relationships with various organizations that provide many opportunities to experience this service, exposing them to new types of people and places that they otherwise may not have the chance to meet.
"The fruit of faith is LOVE.
The fruit of love is SERVICE.
The fruit of service is PEACE."
- St. Teresa of Calcutta (Mother Teresa)
The Catholic faith is at the center of all that we do at Conwell-Egan Catholic High School. As Mother Teresa says above, our faith leads us to a love of others, which then leads to a heart of service. The Christian Service program is an opportunity for students to not only put their Catholic faith into action, but to be engaged in the local community. These motivating factors lead into the purpose of the CEC Christian Service program, to be in tune to the needs of the local community and to provide opportunities for meaningful service that helps our students to be built up in their faith.
These Christian Service events will be organized by the Campus Ministry Office and a calendar of events is provided here. Additional events will be sent to the students via email and will be updated on the calendar. In order to receive credit for an event, students must sign up for the event in advance via the event's Google Form, complete the required waivers and attend the event for its entire duration. Students who completed Service Events over the summer will receive credit for Semester 1/Quarter 1. The Google Form to submit Summer Service can be found here.
