Service Programs and Volunteer Opportunities

Service Program and Volunteer Opportunities

Service of others, especially the needy, is not optional for Christians. It is a mandate found in scripture and in Church teachings. We were each created out of love; thus we are called to respond to all we meet with a return of love. The STMC Service Program is designed to give students an opportunity to put into practice the values of Christian charity, compassion and understanding, we are presenting in Religion classes. This program will allow students to experience Christianity in a dynamic way by actively participating in a wide variety of community service opportunities. Since many students already practice these values in their everyday lives, this component is not a serious obstacle.

Missions and Outreach

Our vision at St. Thomas More Collegiate is for every Knight to make a positive contribution to the Earth and its people. Our mission and outreach programs help to give students an opportunity to help the less fortunate in the world through charity and service. A worldwide tradition in Christian Brothers’ Schools is the collection of money for our foreign missions.

Volunteer Opportunities

In addition to our Student Local Outreach Programs, there are a number of organizations which share STMC’s values who could benefit from the assistance of student volunteers.  All Volunteer Opportunities are posted on the bulletin board outside the Library. Students are encouraged to check out the bulletin board regularly and be inspired to find their passion.
