Christian Service Project
At the heart of our mission at Bonner & Prendie is the idea of Service.
Monsignor Bonner and Archbishop Prendergast Catholic High School is a distinctive community of learners rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are committed to providing a comprehensive, quality education within an environment of acceptance, respect and love. We are committed to the development of the complete person in the service of others. Challenged and guided by time honored traditions, we are committed to a future that enriches the lives of our students with the values and skills necessary to navigate the changing world of tomorrow.
Therefore, we require all students to complete their Christian service project as a way to live out our mission. St. Francis said, “Be the good news always and use words if necessary.” That is the primary objective of this project. We want our students to be intentional and reflective about the service that they do in our school community and the community beyond.
Christian Service Project Details
- All students are to perform a minimum of 10 hours of community service. This service can be completed anywhere and for anyone, off campus or on campus. We encourage our students to look first to their local church and see where they can be of service. After that, we encouraged students to follow this simple process:
- Identify an issue that speaks to your heart.
- Find where your talents can benefit others.
- Be the change you wish to see in the world!
- Students will sign-up for events and track their service hours via our service platform at www.x2vol.com
- All hours must be verified by someone who can attest to the service being completed before they are approved by Mr. Barr. This is done via an email sent by x2vol to the verified supervisor.
- Each student will receive either a Satisfactory of Unsatisfactory on their report card and transcript at the end of each school year, based on whether their 10 hours were completed/verified or not.
- Students are encouraged to reach out to faculty, staff, administration, coaches, Pastors and others to find out ways to help. Students are to ask themselves, “Is what I am doing helping someone else?” If they can answer Yes, then count it towards his or her Service Project.
We want our students to be intentional and reflective in their service of others. If you have questions about the project or would like to suggest ideas for service, please reach out to Mr. Dave Barr, our school minister or myself. Thank you for your support in our development of our students.
