Community Service

Mission Statement

The Department of Spiritual Life and Service community service program encourages men and women to serve others in the name of God.


Weekly Service

Weekly Service is, and always has been, a very important aspect of a Marist education.

We go to schools, after school programs, and a nursing home. Van Driving is also a very necessary part of service (can counts are service).

The commitment is 2 hours every week, same place, same day, same time.

The 2 hour time slot includes transportation. So, if your time slot is 9:00am – 11:00 am, you will leave Marist at 9:00 and you will be back by 11:00. You will meet the van at Donnelly. The driver will bring you to your site and pick you up from the site.

If you complete 16 hours of service, you will receive 2 priority points.

You must sign up for service in person (Byrne House), once you have signed up, you must register your information online. If you have signed up, register here: Weekly Service Registration: Spring 2022
