Christian Service

Christian Service Opportunities

The following service opportunities are available in our local community.  The churches are listed with their respective ministries that are in need of assistance.  Please note, "community service activities are not school activities and Cardinal Gibbons does not mandate or direct any specific location or locations in the community where these services are to be performed.  Students are free to select the location where they wish to perform community service so long as the location and the activity meet the requirements of the school.  Cardinal Gibbons does not operate or control the locations where students choose to perform community service and consequently the school, its agents, and affiliates do not assume responsibility for any injuries, damages, or losses incurred in the course of performing these services in the community.  Students perform these services at their own risk."
