Standout Seniors of Service

Every year our Theology teacher and Service Coordinator, Mr. Tom Gallagher reminds our student body of the Benedictine Hallmark of Service ~ The brothers should serve one another…Such service increases reward and fosters love. Let those who are not strong have help so that they may serve without distress.   Rule of St. Benedict 35:1-3

Our students will participate in at least 10 hours of service each year followed by a Senior Service Project involving at least 20 hours of service.  Most of our students have upwards of 100 hours after their four years!
Here are a few senior standouts who represent Benedictine and the spirituality of St. Benedict.

Michael Shivak volunteered his service at Fresh Air Camp in Cleveland.  Fresh Air Camp is a six-day, overnight camp for children who are tracheostomy or ventilator dependent.  Held annually on the grounds of Camp Cheerful in Strongsville, OH, Fresh Air Camp occurs the second full week of June.  Check out Michael’s presentation!

John Fissel volunteered his service to the Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities.  The Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities’ mission is to support and empower people with developmental disabilities to live, learn, work and play in the community.  Check out John’s presentation!

Blaise Rudmann and Clayton Hongosh volunteered their service at Youth Challenge Sports in Cleveland.  Youth Challenge brings together young people with physical disabilities and teen volunteers who inspire each other through adapted sports, recreation and social growth activities.
