Grad Service Project

Teaching Minds ... Reaching Hearts





Each year, students from St. Joseph High School choose a charity they wish to support that aligns with their graduating class’ goals and values. 

Through the Grad Service Project, students have an opportunity to think creatively about their fundraising efforts, and plan proficient ways to support those in need through referral, advocacy, and financial assistance.

All grades are welcome and encouraged to participate in the Grad Service Project initiatives and events. For more information on the 2021/2022 Grad Service Project, please contact Erin Dirsten, Event Coordinator at 403.341.4423 ext. 332713 or by email at




Loving our God by loving our neighbours through compassion & justice

As our students transition into adulthood we discover ways to celebrate beyond academics. The Grad Service Project creates memories and legacy, as students develop into leaders while building into relationships and community.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength...Love your neighbour as yourself.” Mark 12:30-31

What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?

In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
But someone will say, “You have faith, I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do. James 2:14-16

The Grad Service Project provides opportunity for students to express love as Christ loved, and through the experience learn how to apply the virtues of Jesus to their life.
