All students at PCHS are also required to participate in a Christian Service Program. Service is the fulfillment of our baptismal promises and our patriotic duty. We are called to be compassionate and just people in imitation of Jesus. Therefore, as part of a fully integrated Christian education curriculum, we expect each student to complete at least 10 hours of service independent of class service projects or club-related service. Students in supporting parishes are encouraged to do their 10 hours of service in their parish.
Any student completing any service hours outside of their church must have prior approval by a theology teacher.
Each grade will complete an additional 5 hours of directed service as part of their theology class and/or PC Service Day.
