The Gospel of Matthew reminds us to serve the "least of these," so, too, our school is measured by the help we give to those less fortunate in our community.
Student Christian Service may be completed through any volunteer aid given to a non-profit agency, church, civic or school organization, which seeks to help others.
For questions or concerns regarding Christian Service at BMCHS, contact Mr. Joseph Welch, Director of Campus Ministry, at (405) 842-6638 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Christian service hours for graduation credit or any graduation honors, does not include volunteering at a for-profit business, for activities in which the student is paid, or as the result of disciplinary action.
Christian service for graduation credit or any graduation honors does not include the everyday opportunity one has to serve family, friends, and neighbors.
Ninety Christian Service hours is a graduation requirement and all students will be expected to remain current during their four years at McGuinness. At the beginning of each semester, an inventory will be done for each student. If a student is short the number of required hours, that student will have three weeks to reach the required number. If at the end of the three week probation period the student is still short, they will be ineligible until the desired number is reached. During this time, the student may practice, but not compete, against another school.

The service hour requirement also counts for 10% of the Theology semester grade. Service retreats and projects count towards the student requirement.
The BMCHS Red Cord of Distinguished Service is awarded to seniors who have volunteered a cumulative 300 Christian service hours or more and who complete the Red Cord of Distinguished Service application process.
The Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati Award is presented to one male and one female student selected from those who received the Red Cord Award. Recipients are chosen based on how well they have exhibited the qualities of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati.
