Teen Service Opportunities

Service is an integral part of our Catholic faith. Several projects are offered throughout the year for all interested teens. Opportunities range from events that serve our own parish to the larger community. Scroll down below for descriptions and sign up links for current service opportunities, or let us know how you would like to serve at St. Peter Chanel by completing the High School Teen Volunteer Interest Form. Check back frequently for more dates!

We are happy to sign off on service hours! Bring your completed service hours form to the Religious Education office for the PSR Program Coordinator to review. (For parish ministry events, ask the supervising adult to sign off on your hours). 

Service projects for Confirmation candidates can be found on the Confirmation Preparation page.
