How do students submit community service hours?

Students must fill out this form. If the service was completed at Father Lopez, the students arestill required to complete and turn in the documentation. Once the paperwork is signed by the individual supervising the work, the students can either turn the form into their theology teacher or the Director of Campus Ministry.

When can they start counting their service hours?

Students may start counting service hours after they have completed 8th grade.

What if my student is a transfer student?

If your student transferred to Father Lopez any time after the first semester of freshman year, the student is  not held responsible for the previous year’s requirements. However, we encourage all students to work towards a minimum of 100 hours to satisfy the Bright Futures 100% requirement. You can find the adjusted requirements below.

Can donations count towards community service?

Donations cannot count towards community service. They can, however, count towards Family Service Requirements. Please see the Student Requirements page for more information.

Can I complete hours for my student?

Only students are able to complete hours towards their community service requirements. However, both parents and students are able to complete hours towards the Family Service requirement. Please see the Student Requirements page for more information.

What if my student wants to complete their hours at a for-profit organization?

If your student would like to complete their hours at a for-profit organization, the student must turn in a Community Service Proposal form. This will then be reviewed by the Theology Department to determine if the service completed meets requirements. This service should fall under either category of Corporal or Spiritual Works of Mercy.
