Mater Dei students are required to actively serve their community by giving of their time and talents. All service must be completed through a non-profit organization; students may not receive monetary compensation for their service; and their work must not generate profit for the organization.
The expectation is for students to complete 25 hours of service each year to meet the 100-hour graduation requirement. These requirements will be monitored through the students’ Theology classes. Students are required to submit documentation verifying the completion of their service during their second semester. In addition, students are required to write a service paper. This will account for 15% of the student’s second semester Theology grade. The submission date for documentation, verification and service paper is in the beginning of May each year.
