Christian Service Program

It is the hope that each graduate of Cardinal Gibbons High School be ready to contribute to the world locally and globally.  Using the gifts that God has bestowed on us, we are called to serve one another, particularly those who are the most vulnerable among us.  Students are required to complete 25 hours of community each year at CGHS, of which 10 must be in Direct Service to the poor and needy.  Christian Service is to be completed with a non-profit (501 C-3) organization.   Students who completes more than the required amount of hours may be eligible for additional recognition.  Students who complete more than 250 hours may be honored at graduation with the Gold Cord.  In addition, there are scholarships from community civic organizations based on a student’s service record.  Christian Service hours are noted on the official transcript of CGHS.
Please read the 2018-2019 Guidelines as we have updated our program.

Awareness Weeks

The students of CGHS are given the opportunity to reach beyond the world of academics and experience Vocations Awareness Week, Respect Life Week, Missions Week and Catholic Schools Week. These programs are carried out in the Theology classes, and students are given the opportunity to listen to guest speakers, as well as engage in special projects.

Charity Drives

Cardinal Gibbons assists various organizations that help the needy in the community. Among other projects, students contribute to annual Thanksgiving and Christmas drives. Other drives have been set up to assist the Red Cross, The American Cancer Society, The United Way, the Respect Life Office of the Archdiocese of Miami, and the Ronald McDonald House of Ft. Lauderdale.
