Service Program

St. Joseph Service Program

For Middle & High School Students  
This program is approved to fulfill service hours for Archbishop Hoban, St. Vincent-St. Mary, Our Lady Of the Elms, and Walsh Jesuit High Schools. 

Saint Joseph Parish is sponsoring a service program to provide an opportunity for our Middle and High School Students to directly interact with and work alongside the poor, marginalized, and vulnerable. Over the course of the summer and school year, students will visit and work at different sites, while connecting with people of different backgrounds. They will also be able to gain insight and appreciation for the work that it takes to plan and implement a service program as they create their own service project.  See the calendar on the next page for more details.
