Why a Christian Service Requirement
Service is a way of life at Lansing Catholic. Jesus repeatedly modeled and taught us to put all we have at the service of others, and he gives us his strength to continue that mission today. The aim of our Christian service requirement is to assist students in making service an integral part of their lives. In particular, our requirement is focused on service to the less fortunate (Mt 25:45) and to those outside of one’s immediate communities.
About our Christian Service Requirement
Lansing Catholic students must complete and log at least 80 hours of service prior to graduation. Service must be logged in our online portal at x2vol.com.
What does not count as service?
To help you better fulfill this call to Christian Service, below are some examples of service that will not be approved:
- Service for any organization whose activities are in opposition to our Catholic faith.
- Service for a political campaign
- Service that directly benefits a for-profit organization
- Service that directly benefits an organization to which you already belong (with the exception of your parish)
- Service for LCHS or for your family
Where can I complete my service?
You can complete your service at any non-profit organization that fulfills the above requirements. Below is a link to a list of pre-approved agencies you might choose from.
Questions about service should be directed to our service coordinator, Ms. DeVries at (517)267-2158 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mobile Food Pantry
Saturday, April 15, 2017 LCHS will host the City of Lansing's Mobile Food Pantry. During the food pantry, we will provide breakfast and hospitality for nearly 2000 people, and we will help distribute food to over 600 households.
Service is so important that we cancel classes for a day to be of service to the community in our annual work-a-thon above and beyond the service our students regularly perform. Faculty, staff, and parents are also involved in the day as we help 30+ agencies in the greater-Lansing area. Our 2017 work-a-thon is scheduled for Friday, April 28th. Parents and alumni who wish to volunteer for work-a-thon, or agencies who would like to be involved, should contact Ms. DeVries at 267-2158 or by email at email@example.com.
