Five Works of Mercy service hours are due on Friday, December 11.
Students in need of service should check the Campus Ministry bulletin board regularly for details and find opportunities that fit their interest and schedule. Parents will be notified on their BT community email address about the service hour status for their student. The Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks are a great time to volunteer to help community needs.
Upcoming service opportunities include:
