2019 Service Awards

It’s time again for the Service Awards!  

This is the seventh year that Face Forward, a program of The Office of Vocations, is accepting applications from all students in the Columbus Diocese in grades 8-12. Two $500 awards will be given based on the three criteria of: a 300-word essay on the importance of service, level of parish involvement and service to the community.  

If the $500 award isn’t a good enough reason for you to apply, here are seven more reasons that you should consider:

  1. Demonstrate how your faith comes alive through your service.
  2. Be part of a “positive peer pressure” movement to show that being active in your parish and serving others is cool.
  3. Show that scripture is alive – Matthew 10:8 says “Without cost you have received, without cost you are to give.”
  4. Take time to reflect on your service and how it adds to your life.
  5. Make a difference in the world one service project at a time.
  6. Inspire others to take a leap of faith, and follow their passion through service to others.
  7. Find yourself by losing yourself in service.

Applications will be accepted through May 17, 2019, so apply today!
