Service to others is an essential part of the message of Jesus, and thus our Catholic faith. Jesus, in His love and compassion for the poor and the outcast, said what we do to the least among us, we do to Him (Mt. 25:40). In a special way, the spiritual foundation of the Sisters of the Divine Savior calls us to serve as Jesus served.
The DSHA graduation service requirement is an important component of faith development as well as a means to build character, develop leadership and communication skills, and give students critical insight into the needs of the community. It calls students to be of service to people experiencing hunger, economic disadvantage, illness, isolation or special needs (physical, emotional, developmental, etc.) Our Catholic values, grounded in our Salvatorian identity, are evident in the daily service of our school community and lead our students to a greater awareness of their responsibility to act for justice and serve the needs of others.
