Christian Service Addendum


Junipero Serra's motto “Siempre Adelante” Always Forward is what we are living at this time.  Recent events have made it necessary that we shift our focus for continuing the Christian Service Journey.  With this in mind Junipero Serra High School will modify, effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020, and up to the date that Christian Service hours are November 30, 2020.  After November 30, 2020, the program will be re-evaluated for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year if continuing person-to-person accommodations are necessary.  


The following changes are effective Tuesday March 17th, 2020: 

  1. Christian Service hours for the Fall 2020 Semester are reduced from ten (10)-hours to five (5)-hours.
  2. Intercessory and Contemplative Prayer will be the primary mode of service not person-to-person volunteering. 
  1. Students' prayer will focus areas outside of their personal interest.
  2. Students' verification will be signed by Mr. McDorman.
  1. The rubric will focus on the Spiritual Works of Mercy:

The Spiritual Works of Mercy are:

  1. To instruct the ignorant.
  2. To counsel the doubtful.
  3. To admonish the sinners.
  4. To bear patiently those who wrong us.
  5. To forgive offenses.
  6. To comfort the afflicted.
  7. To pray for the living and the dead
  1. The students will then fill out their prayer reflection, take a picture and then email it to Mr. McDorman at when their hours are due:
  1. 3:15 PM, November 30, 2020 All Grade Levels
  2. 3:15 PM, April 30, 2021, for Seniors
  3. 3:15 PM, May 10, 2021 for Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors.
