Community Service

Following in the footsteps of St. Francis of Assisi, Melbourne Central Catholic provides community members with many opportunities to serve our local and global communities. MCC students see the face of Christ in their neighbors by participating in community service projects like serving at local food banks and soup kitchens. Because the goals of the program are central to the goals of Catholic education, each student must complete a minimum of 25 community service hours of each year. The result of this experience is a growing awareness of the needs of others, greater compassion, and a clearer understanding of social justice.
