Christian Service experiences at Seton Catholic High School enable students to put their faith into action and includes faith sharing and prayer, individual reflection, lessons in community building, simple living, helping others and social justice.  Our hope is that through this service, students will become aware of their responsibilities as Christians to serve others, especially those in need.  

In 2016-2017, 170 Seton students gave back a whopping 12,600 hours of community service to the local SWWA community!  Many of those service hours were to churches, parish communities, local charities and non-profits in our community.
