Christian Service at Mercy
Catherine McAuley, the founder of the Sisters of Mercy, dedicated her life to working with those who live on the margins of society. In honor and emulation of her, the program at Mercy:
CHRISTIAN SERVICE REQUIREMENTS
A MINIMUM OF 50 HOURS OF VOLUNTEER WORK WITH A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION *
CULMINATING SERVICE PROJECT
During their junior year, students develop the CSP plan with the guidance of a Special Program Coordinator or the Director of Campus Ministry and Christian Service. This is then presented in the Fall of Senior Year.
- At least 15 hours at one approved non-profit organization
- Fulfillment of all portfolio assignments
- A 10-paragraph reflection paper
- Participation in the Culminating Service Project Fair during the Fall of Senior year
- Preparation of an Electronic Display, as well as optional table display items.
CONSEQUENCES FOR FAILURE TO COMPLETE THE COMMUNITY SERVICE REQUIREMENTS
Failure to fulfill the annual requirements for community service will result in community service probation, suspending a student’s ability to participate in co-curricular activities until her requirements are met.
