Called to Serve - Community Service
“Here I am Lord; I come to do your will”
In the Archdiocese of Miami, Catholic schools provide service to those in need at the school, church, state, and national levels. In order to fulfill the mission of forming disciples, the necessary elements of teaching Catholic values and reflection on the impact of the activity need to be combined with the action of serving the community. Through our Community Service Learning (CSL) Program at St. Brendan High School, students are provided an opportunity to take action and reflect upon the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy that have been incorporated into their instruction. Our CSL program is intended not simply as an exercise in the satisfaction of a certain number of hours of service to the community, but rather is intended to help students learn from that service in a real and meaningful way, and grow in their faith.
