The Theology Departments sponsors this course in Community Service in order to provide an opportunity for you to integrate your religious learning within the Christian call to serve. You are now an empowered woman to share your gifts with the world!

1. to provide an opportunity through service in which you can explore your own giftedness and ways of sharing it with others.

2. to help raise your social awareness through service.

3. to challenge you to broaden your personal commitment to serve others both in the present and the future.

4. to provide you with an opportunity to reflect on particular social issues connected with the population you serve through your reading, writing and discussion with others.

The service project which you choose must comply with the following guidelines:

1. The work must serve persons directly (e.g., secretarial work without relating directly to clientele served is not allowed).

2. These persons should have "special needs" -- those associated with age, social or economic background; physical, mental or emotional deprivation or disabilities.

3. The student may not receive pay (monetary compensation) for her service.

4. The project should include a minimum of 30 hours or service as well as a minimum of 5 days of service; with the exception of Nerinx-sponsored Spring Break Service, the hours cannot count until after Junior final exams in May.

5. The student's service must take place in one location.

6. The proposal of service must be approved by Ms. Hartrich.

1. Preliminary Report: This initial report (yellow sheet in Contract Packet), includes your general goals and learning plan (reading and research) for your project.

2. Service Packet: This is your final product to be submitted after completion of your service experience. See description.

The focus group offers students the opportunity to share varying experiences and impressions of their service and from their association with persons served. Likewise it offers you the opportunity to learn form the experiences of others. **Bring any copies of photos you took during your service for "show and tell."
