The service program at St. Apollinaris Catholic School provides our students with many opportunities to accept their responsibility in the community and their need to work for social justice. Students are involved in planning and implementing the service program on different levels. Our students support the Canned Food Drive at Thanksgiving, the Towel and Toiletry Drive at Christmas for the Samaritan House Project, the Cereal Drive for Catholic Charities and the Christmas Angel Tree, The Table, Youth Habitat for Humanity, a Catholic school in Uganda, the Kairos Prison Ministry, and the Child Protective Services Christmas Toy Project. They visit retirement centers and are encouraged to contribute to St. Vincent de Paul baskets outside church on the last Sunday of each month.
Seventh and eighth grades have a special service program where students are encouraged to do 24 hours of community, school, and church service prior to graduating. In these ways students, as active citizens and active Catholic Christians, learn the importance of serving God, the Church, and their neighbors.
