Committed to developing Christian leaders in the Marianist tradition, Daniel J. Gross Catholic High School provides a program of apostolic outreach that seeks to educate all students for service, justice and peace by offering their time, talent and treasure in service of God and their neighbor.
Each Gross Catholic student will offer service to their parish, the wider Church, the Gross Catholic community, and the local community.
20 hours of charitable service freshmen year
25 hours of charitable service sophomore year
30 hours of charitable service during junior year (the junior service retreat will count for 5 hours)
35 hours of charitable service during senior year (the senior Social Justice practicum will count for 10 hours)
All charitable service and verification sheets for the current academic year will be completed on or before Tuesday, April 30, 2013.
Someone other than a parent of the student is to act as the adult supervisor for charitable service. Neither parent may sign the verification sheet as “adult supervisor” for the charitable activity.
If any underclassman fails to meet the expectations of this program, credits for the current theology class will be withheld until all expectations of the program are fulfilled to the satisfaction of the program director.
If any student fails to meet the expectations of this program during their senior year, they will not receive their diploma and transcripts will not be released.
