Christian Service

Christian Service Graduation Requirement:

Wherever you find Christ, there you will also find all-encompassing, self-sacrificial love for others.” (Jennifer Fulwiler)


St. Francis Borgia Regional High School recognizes Pope Francis’s message that we should “encounter those most in need” in our daily lives and the best way to do that is through service. We want our students to see the power and the good of making a Christian commitment to the service of others.  Therefore, all students are required to serve a minimum of 100 Christian Service hours before they graduate.


Christian Service Requirements:

  1. Ideally, the service is spread throughout the four years, i.e., a minimum of 25 hours per school year per student. 
  2. Regular opportunities can be found on the Helper Helper app, but students can identify their own opportunities,  If in doubt if it will count as service, please check in with Mrs. Mauntel.
  3. A maximum of 12.5 hours can be completed for Borgia.


Examples of what is Christian Service:

  • Volunteering at parish, school, or community events
  • Working with the elderly or special needs community
  • Mentoring or tutoring others
  • Providing for the needy
  • Volunteering at not-for-profit agencies


Examples of what isn't Christian Service:

  • Working at someone’s business for free
  • Dog sitting
  • Cutting your healthy neighbor’s grass
  • Family chores


Specific questions concerning Christian Service can be directed to Mrs. Gwen Mauntel.
