Jesus talks about stewardship a lot. In fact, about 50% of his parables dealt, in one way or another, with stewardship. We are called by Christ to use our talents, time, and treasure to further His Kingdom on earth and we will all have to render an account to Him of how we used the gifts He gave us in service to Him in our brothers and sisters (cf. Mt 25: 31-46). To help the students of Fisher Catholic High School practice being good stewards of the gifts God has given them they are called to be of service to their community, especially those members of the community who are most in need.
MANDATORY SERVICE HOURS
Freshmen, sophomores, and seniors are required each year to complete a minimum of 10 hours of service to the community outside of the school. Service logs will be available in theology class rooms and in the main office. Service hours will be collected in theology classes by the beginning of the fourth quarter each year. Failure to complete the minimum requirement of 10 hours may result in failure to be promoted to the next grade.
JUNIOR SERVICE PROJECT
Every student will be required to complete a service project between the summer after their sophomore year and the beginning of the fourth quarter their junior year. This project will consist of the following parts: proposal by the student, approval by a moderator, log of activities associated with the project, and a final portfolio documenting the project including a meaningful reflection on the experience. This project should consist of a minimum investment of 30 hours that address some need in the larger community.
