Service Opportunities

We are called to serve!  All John Carroll students are required to give of their time and talents to serve God and His Church within their families, parishes, and communities. Each student is expected to record at least 25 service hours per year as a requirement in their Religion class. John Carroll partners with local parishes and service organizations to provide opportunities for service and is proud of the humility and love that students share with their communities.
Pope Francis said, “Whatever you do, do not become the sorry sight of an abandoned vehicle! Don’t be parked cars, but dream freely and make good decisions. Take risks, even if it means making mistakes. Don’t go through life anesthetized or approach the world like tourists. Make a ruckus! Cast out the fears that paralyze you, so that you don’t become young mummies. Live! Give yourselves over to the best of life! Open the door of the cage, go out and fly! Please, don’t take an early retirement.” -Post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation Christus Vivit

Community service activities are not school activities, and John Carroll High School does not mandate or direct any specific location or locations in the community where these services are to be performed.  Students are free to select the location where they wish to perform community service so long as the location and the activity meet the requirements of the school. John Carroll High School does not operate or control the locations where students choose to perform community service and consequently the school, its agents, and affiliates do not assume responsibility for any injuries, damages, or losses incurred in the course of performing these services in the community.  Students perform these services at their own risk.
