Cardinal Ritter High School Service Program
“But the greatest among you shall be your servant.”
Our service program is an intricate part of the life of a Cardinal Ritter student. We are the hands and feet of Jesus on Earth and are called to serve one another. As Cardinal Joseph Ritter promoted, students strive to see past others’ differences to focus on each person’s dignity. The goal of Cardinal Ritter’s service program is for students to understand the importance of living in solidarity with every human person. Students are given the tools to carry out Christ’s mission of always placing others first.
All students are required to earn service hours every semester. Service hours must have a direct correlation with the Corporal Works of Mercy, as stated below:
Corporal Works of Mercy
Feed the Hungry
Give Drink to the Thirsty
Shelter the Homeless
Clothe the Naked
Visit the Sick
Visit the Imprisoned
Bury the Dead
We are excited to use the Mobile Serve website and app access. NO MORE SERVICE PAPERS!!!! Instead, all students will create an account through our service provider. Students will be able to view future opportunities, post pictures, and easily track completed hours through mobileserve.com
All hours are then verified through our Service Learning Leaders! Service hours are due by May 8, 2020!
Hours Required By Grade Per Semester:
Junior High: 2
Our Service Learning Leaders is an organization of student leaders who are dedicated to the mission of service in our school, community and the world. To become part of this team, students must fill out an application in the spring and be interviewed by a small committee of teachers. Service Leaders are role models for our student body who show a dedication and desire to the importance of service. The committee looks for individuals who are selfless, dedicated and hard-working. This group verifies service hours, searches for service opportunities to share with the student body and plans/organizes class service projects.
