Submit Service Hours Online you say?

Yes!  Beginning this year, the Service Office is returning to an online form for submitting service hours, along with a monthly signature log​ to have your supervisors sign off on.  This log is due monthly to your religion teacher.  Click here to read an explanation of this new process.

Monthly Service at St. Thomas of Canterbury:

Each month, 10 Notre Dame students and two faculty/staff go to service at St. Thomas of Canterbury Parish's soup kitchen in Uptown.  The dates for fall 2015 are below; each time we volunteer we leave immediately after school, and return to Notre Dame between 7:30 and 8 pm.

Find more information about St. Thomas's soup kitchen on their parish website

Sign-ups for service at St. Thomas are posted to VolunteerSpot the week before our scheduled dates.  Due to space on vehicles and at St. Thomas's kitchen, at this time we are able to offer spots to no more than 10 students.
