Ministry

Service

Service is an integral opportunity that allows students to achieve excellence outside of the classroom. Lake Catholic is committed to seeking opportunities for our students to serve others in our community.

List of 5 items.

  • Cougar-to-Cougar Initiative

    Lake Catholic High School enjoys a close-knit relationship with St. Thomas Aquinas Elementary School in Cleveland. Multiple events are organized for service opportunities, all school drives, and special projects. We love our little Cougars!
    For questions, contact Mr. Gregg Stovicek at gstovicek@lakecatholic.org.
  • Feed My Lambs Meal Ministry

    Feed My Lambs Meal Ministry
    We make our commitment to the hungry and the homeless with food preparation as our personal connection to people in immediate need. On the last Tuesday of each month, we prepare 60 hot meals for Project Hope for the Homeless in Painesville. We also make 200 sandwiches and pots of soup to be served at St. Malachi Hunger Center in Cleveland. Students and adults join to make these meals in a spirit of solidarity and fellowship.

    The monthly cost of this program is $500 and we hope you will consider an exciting underwriting opportunity of the Feed My Lambs Meal Ministry Program. We hope you will join us in our efforts to help people in need from our community. For more information on underwriting opportunities click here.

    For questions or more information, please contact Mrs. Alison Ellis at aellis@lakecatholic.orgor 440-578-1020 ext. 256.
  • Nicodemus Pallbearer Ministry

    This special ministry allows us to serve others while reinforcing the consistent ethic of respect for life from conception to natural death. Our scholars respond to requests from families in need of pallbearers or altar servers for wakes, funerals, and graveside services. Humbled and honored, we pray with the families and act as representatives of our greater Catholic family with respect and compassion.

    For questions, contact Mr. Gregg Stovicek at gstovicek@lakecatholic.org.
  • Service Requirements

    Lake Catholic High School students will use the MobileServe app, which logs, tracks, and verifies service. A start-up guide of how to use the App is available by scrolling down. Opportunities for service are promoted on the website and e-mail, on CBN News, and in Theology classes. To see the opportunities currently available, please visit the Service webpage at https://sites.google.com/lakecatholicapps.org/service.

    The following parameters are designed to help students plan out their service for the school year:
    • Freshman: The Community Service Program is incorporated into the Freshmen Theology Curriculum. Students will complete ten hours of service throughout the year.
    • Sophomores: Fifteen hours of service to a church community completed by June 1, 2019. All hours must be tracked within the MobileServe app.
    • Juniors: Fifteen hours of service to a disenfranchised population completed by June 1, 2019. All hours must be tracked within the MobileServe app.
    • Seniors: Ten hours of service to Lake Catholic completed by March 1, 2019. All hours must be tracked within the MobileServe app.
    Students must verify service using at least two of the means presented through MobileServe (geo-verification, name & email of the site supervisor, a signature of the supervisor, and photos of themselves in action), one of which MUST be the supervisor's email. Students should double-check that they have entered the correct email address. Students should participate in a variety of service experiences that take them outside their comfort level over the course of the high school years.

    Students are asked to record ALL service. Any service beyond the minimum requirement or performed outside the specific categories for the grade levels should be categorized as “Additional Service” on the App. All additional service hours performed will be added to the total service hours to be counted towards service awards. All hours must be turned in by March 1st of senior year to be considered for service at graduation. Students who have not completed their service requirement for the previous school year will need to make up those hours during their current school year. Those students will be notified within the first few weeks of the school year. All requirements must be met in order to graduate and participate in graduation activities. Those who have not met their required service hours will not receive their schedules for next year until necessary documentation is turned into the Service Office via MobileServe. Students may begin accumulating hours as of June 1st of their eighth-grade year.
