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:
- Demonstrate how your faith comes alive through your service.
- Be part of a “positive peer pressure” movement to show that being active in your parish and serving others is cool.
- Show that scripture is alive – Matthew 10:8 says “Without cost you have received, without cost you are to give.”
- Take time to reflect on your service and how it adds to your life.
- Make a difference in the world one service project at a time.
- Inspire others to take a leap of faith, and follow their passion through service to others.
- Find yourself by losing yourself in service.
Applications will be accepted through May 17, 2019, so apply today!
