Christian Service Awards
MILLION IN AWARDS
STUDENTS IN CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL TODAY
Christian Service is defined as acts that stem from a Christ-centered belief in serving the Lord and doing His will. Service is the selfless giving of oneself to benefit others with no expectation of recognition, reward, or acknowledgement.
The mission of the Christian Service Awards Program is to acknowledge students who demonstrate exemplary Christ-centered behavior through volunteer service to parish, school and community. Recipients display a love and understanding of their Catholic faith and articulate a commitment, not only to perform acts of service, but to live a service-focused life. They recognize their God-given gifts and provide persuasive evident of their maturity, humility and leadership.

- Are practicing Catholics registered within the Diocese of Phoenix;
- Exemplify Christ-centered behavior through volunteer service to parish, school, and community;
- Plan to attend a Catholic high school within the Diocese of Phoenix;
