Totino-Grace Lasallian青年 offers students the opportunity to be of service in the local community. Service opportunities include service immersion trips, theology class service opportunities, and team or club volunteer events. Lasallian青年 service projects are an ideal way to reach out in service to others.
There are no required service hours at Totino-Grace. We believe that our students are already servants, 给他们的家人, 他们的同学, 他们的团队, 他们的俱乐部, 他们的教区, and their wider communities. However, the majority of our students want to serve communities beyond those they see every day. Lasallian青年 provides meaningful opportunities for students to live out their faith through service.
Students can learn more and sign up to volunteer in the Campus 部 Office.
Social Justice and Catholic Social Teaching
Social teaching is a central element of the Catholic Church. As a Catholic and Lasallian community we place emphasis on social justice education and action through our mission, curriculum and campus ministry programming.
There are seven themes of Catholic social teaching:
- Life and Dignity of the Human Person
- Call to Family, 社区 and Participation
- Rights and Responsibilities
- Option for the Poor and Vulnerable
- The Dignight of Work and Rights of Workers
- Care for God's Creation
Totino-Grace is committed to bringing social justice teaching topics and experiences to our students. 我们的教师, 工作人员, coaches and moderators help strengthen students' awareness of social justice systems and provide charity opportunities in a variety of ways throughout the school year. Examples include: mission trip experiences, lasallian youth service projects, respect life group opportunities, mission collection and donation opportunities through campus ministry and co-curricular group initiatives, partnership with Common Hope and St. Josephs in Keren, Eritrea.
Our Religion Department offers a Social Justice elective course that includes examines how we are called to address systems and do charitable work.
