COMMUNITY BASED SERVICE LEARNING
Intent & Mission
Serving the "Least of These" Outreach and Charity
Catholic Schools are called to reach out to the suffering, the poor, and the vulnerable in our midst in concrete acts of charity. Just as the Gospel tells us, our lives will be judged by our response to the "least of these," so too our school should be measured by our help for those less fortunate in our community and beyond. We offer support to a wide array of local and global nonprofits, schools, and churches.
In their pastoral message, the US Conference of Catholic Bishops teaches “preferential treatment for the poor and vulnerable.” We intend to reflect this teaching in our Community Based Service Learning Program.
In keeping with the Mission Statement of Cardinal Newman High School, it is the ultimate goal of the Community Based Service Learning Program to graduate leaders who create and support positive social change. Students demonstrate leadership skills through the development of unique service projects. Responding to the Gospel call of Jesus to serve others, students share their talents and time in active service to a variety of CN approved non-profit community organizations.
