Faith in Action means living our lives of faith with love, concern and compassion for others and our world. Faith in Action is using our God-given gifts to live the call of Christ to build God’s loving kingdom here on Earth – one kind, thoughtful interaction at a time. We hope to nurture in our students, faculty and staff a determination to be a positive force for good. Cathedral Catholic High School encourages putting our faith in action through a fully communal approach to service. The entire CCHS school community works together to serve communities near and far, build community at school and beyond, foster awareness for freedom and justice in the world, and awaken a sense of social responsibility. Students grow their faith by learning to see the face of God in others and to be the hands and heart of Christ to them.
Cathedral Catholic encourages students to find their passion for serving God, others and our world through a variety of opportunities including Faith in Action Service Day Trips, local, regional and international Service Immersion Trips, assistance drives during the school year, optional service days and through exploration of personal service experiences. Students do not need to log these personal service experiences that take place outside of the CCHS program. However, it is helpful to keep a journal of these experiences for two reasons. First, our seniors complete a service project which highlights the service they have completed throughout their high school career. Also, in order to be eligible for the CCHS Caritas Award (see details below – or link), students complete an application which includes a database recording of hours of service.
