Community Outreach

“This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.” 2 Corinthians 9:12

In accordance with the church’s social teachings and the St. Patrick Catholic School Student Learning Expectations, all students shall be required to provide service within our local community. It is our responsibility to give back to our community with our time and talent to make a difference.

Grades K-4th will participate in projects during school hours. Grades 5th & 6th will complete five accountable hours, Grades 7th & 8th will complete ten accountable hours.


  • Students may complete their required hours within our school and or parish community responding to the needs of our school and parish.
  • Volunteer work needs to be done without compensation.
  • Volunteer work needs to be done at organizations or institutions that are considered non-profit. Favors done for neighbors even without compensation are not considered community service.
