Good Samaritan Program

Overview

At Lancaster Catholic High School, we encourage our students to put their faith in action by serving in their community. During each particular school year, each student is required to accomplish 20 service hours, but many go above and beyond the expected. Their service hours may be achieved in many different ways, below is a list of acceptable opportunities.
 
UPDATE: During the school year of 2020-2021 the requirement has been changed to 10 service hours due to covid-19.

Seniors - Please Note: Seniors must complete 10 hours by the end of the first semester of their senior year, and the remaining 10 hours must be completed by the last day of finals.
 

What Does NOT Count

  1. Family services, such as mowing the lawn or baby-sitting are family obligations and will not be accepted.
  2. Helping elderly grandparents, aunts, uncles unless when connected with an approved non-profit organization.
  3. Service performed for a for-profit company will not be accepted unless approved by the program director prior to the performing of the service.
  4. Students who wish to perform service at a location not on the approved list must ask Ms. Noelle Cybulski for approval.
  5. Parents/Guardians may NOT fulfill these requirements for their children.
  6. Some community service or civic organizations will NOT be approved due to their stance on certain moral issues which are in opposition to the official teachings of the Catholic Church
