Faith Community Service

Immaculate Heart Central’s Faith Community Service Program has a two-fold mission: to provide opportunities for our school body to live its faith while helping to meet some of the many needs of its local community.

The FCS motto, “Carry Each Other,” is taken from Galatians 6:2 and speaks of our responsibility to care for each of our brothers whoever they may be.
 

Our program offers a broad palette of service opportunities and matches students who are ready and willing to help others with local agencies often desperate for volunteers and community members in need of a helping hand. IHC students donate on average 3,000 hours to the greater Watertown community each year.

FCS members rake leaves for the elderly, participate in community-wide tree plantings, serve at Dollar Dinners, help out at the Urban Mission, support local parish and community fundraising events, build drip irrigation kits for farmers in developing countries, provide in-school peer tutoring, assist with IHC system-wide events, maintain our chapel facility and are “on-call” for any community outreach requiring special assistance. Our students also participate in an Annual Summer Mission rehabilitating homes of families in need!

While our Faith Community Service program helps students stretch themselves in service here in our immediate community, Immaculate Heart Central’s Annual Respect Life Initiative offers a different lesson in service. This annual initiative challenges our students to answer the age-old question of “who exactly is our neighbor?”
