Living our Faith in Service
Service is an integral part of Our Lady of Lourdes School. By helping at the school and parish, in our neighborhood, and in the greater community, students begin to learn the value of stewardship. Service helps us become faith-filled people and gives us the opportunity to demonstrate compassion, consideration, and respect for others. It also helps us celebrate, understand, and apply our Gospel values.
Service is incorporated into the school culture, ensuring that students learn the value of serving others in our local and global communities. Each class participates in a service project that serves our local or global community.
The following are examples of service projects OLL students have participated in:
Clark County Food Bank – sorting and repacking food
- Heritage Farm food harvesting

We do keep track of TOTAL hours per student, and recognize top service students!
