The St. Vincent de Paul Service Society at Father Ryan High School awards students who have served at least 120 hours in their community through the Corporal Works of Mercy. At least 40 of those hours must be with one organization to show a commitment and understanding of that organization over time. Students had to serve, apply by writing about their service, its meaning, and its challenges, and receive a recommendation from that organization to be accepted into the society.
This year, 16 new members were inducted in a Mass and ceremony to join the three current members. With 19 members, their combined service hour total is 2,995.
We are so proud of our students and their commitment to continuing the tradition of service at Father Ryan!
