Community Service

Every year, each student is responsible to complete and document twenty-five (25) hour minimum requirement of Opus Fidelium every school year. All IHS Community Service hours must be completed and submitted for each individual activity as soon as the individual service activity has been completed. Using the X2VOL software program, complete documentation will include submission of the date(s) of service, number of hours of service, place of service, a description of service activity, and the e-signature of the supervisor under which the student has served. Upon verification the student’s permanent record shall list the service as completed.

Through serving others, students grow in their knowledge of the world and themselves. Campus Ministry offers many opportunities to engage in service.
