All Bishop Manogue students are required to complete 100 hours of Christian Service in order to graduate. This is an important part of the education and spiritual growth at Bishop Manogue Catholic High School. Although it may seem daunting, garnering Christian Service hours can be among the most rewarding experiences of a student's time here. The Campus Ministry team is always availabe to help students find service opportunites and facilitate the process of completing their requirements, and opportunites are listed on this page as they become available.
There are also certain all-school service opportunities throughout the year,in which students are encouraged to participate, and ANY student may receive hours toward their year’s completion. Information on these will be distributed as it becomes available.
All Christian Service hours must be performed for an established, non-profit organization and recorded on Bishop Manogue's Christian Service Form. This form must be signed by a supervisor from the non-profit organization. Christian service requirements vary by grade level as follows:
- 20 hours of service to the homeless and neglected
(Qualifiying organzations include Casa de Vida, Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada, Boys and Girls Club, Special Olympics, St. Vincent’s Food Pantry, Mary’s Embrace, and Family Promise)
- 25 hours of service to the ill, disabled, and forgotten
(Qualifiying organzations include Ronald McDonald House, at-risk schools such as Sierra Vista or Echo Loder, nursing or retirement homes, area hospitals, Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada, Boys and Girls Club, and Family Promise)
- 25 hours of service in the field of education, literacy, and extra
(Qualifiying organzations and activities include CYO, tutoring, Boys and Girls Club, and after-school programs.)
- 30 hours of service to the hungry, homeless, and neglected
(Qualifying organization include Casa de Vida, Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada, Boys and Girls Club, Special Olympics, St. Vincent’s Food Pantry, Mary’s Embrace, and Family Promise).
Students should also turn in any additional hours earned in a year, and/or hours that are not in their field. These will be recorded toward the 200 hours required for a Service Award at graduation, but will not be counted toward the standard 100 required hours.
Christian Service Forms must be turned in to the student's theology teacher no later than the first week of April each year, along with a reflection paper. (Reflection papers will be discussed with students in their theology classes.)
For questions on Christian Service, see our Christian Service Info and FAQs, contact Mr. Cobb at 775-336-6010 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or see your theology teacher. It is expected that all 100 service hours will be completed by the end of the first semester of the student's senior year.
