Christian Service

Christian Service

The goal of Christian service at Santa Margarita is that students grow in their relationship with Christ through direct service to the poor and vulnerable; grow in empathy for those different from themselves; and gain understanding of the Catholic Church’s commitment to life and social justice.

Service is at the heart of Santa Margarita’s charism, Caritas Christi, which means “the love of Christ.” The four principles of Caritas Christi: Humility, Compassion, Goodness and Justice are lived out in a life serving others.


The Caritas Christi Project: Religion 1

The Caritas Christi Project is a class wide introduction to the service experience at Santa Margarita.

The Corpus Christi Project: Religion 2

 

The Caritas Christi Project: Religion 2

Corpus Christi means Body of Christ, and in this project, we focus on feeding those members of the Body of Christ who do not have the means to feed themselves.


Lumen Christi Project:
Religion 3 & 4

The Lumen Christi project is a continuation of the Christian service experience for students in Religion 3 and 4. Students choose one or more nonprofits to serve with.

Service Opportunities

Christian Service at Santa Margarita Catholic High School is an opportunity for our students to use their gifts and talents in service to others as they encounter Christ through their experiences. As our service partners return to normal service settings, we are returning to our traditional requirement of direct, in-person service. Christian Service is an extension of our students educational and spiritual formation, where they are able to share Caritas Christi with the communities they serve.

Additional service opportunities are regularly communicated to students through their Campus Life TEAMS and Eagle Update.
