Students at Norfolk Catholic are taught to understand their responsibility to help the community through prayer and active service. They are also acquainted with the Gospels and have encountered the person of Jesus Christ as He is presented in the Scriptures.
Living Faith Hours have been built into the Theology Curriculum of Norfolk Catholic 9-12 Grades. Students must complete 5 hours of Living Faith each semester.
Hours are met in a wide variety of ways: by helping organizations or individuals in the community, volunteering for various events and nearly any way that our students become Christ's hands and feet in the world around them.
The students and staff at Norfolk Catholic Schools regularly support needy families in the Norfolk area. Some of the ways that they have provided help and assistance include:
Physical labor (raking, mowing, household tasks) for the elderly or sick.
Visiting the elderly or sick in nursing homes.
Providing food - either by cooking or collection of food items - for those in need.
Monetarily supporting families.
And many, many other ways!
