Service


Since our founding, the hallmark of a Catholic Memorial education is both that our boys are prepared for life beyond CM with a strong academic foundation and that they are guided by an eagerness to love God and serve others in all that they do.

Responding to Jesus’ call to love God and love neighbor and inspired by the educational mission of Blessed Edmund Rice and the Christian Brothers, the mission of the CM Service Program is to foster in our students an enthusiasm to share their God-given gifts and talents with their communities, and a passion to live their lives in service of others.




Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk

Since 2005, CM has participated in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. Each year hundreds of students and faculty fundraise to support the American Cancer Society’s efforts. CM has raised more $250,000 in support of cancer research and was named to the 100 List by Massachusetts General Hospital, which recognizes the 100 individuals and organizations doing the most to support cancer research.



Mission Madness

Each March, Campus Ministry hosts a March Madness style tournament to raise money for the Christian Brothers Mission in Peru. collection. Each week in March, homerooms go head to head to see who can raise the most money for the missions, with the victor going to the next round. The homeroom that wins the tournament wins a trophy and a prize.

Hunger Fest

The Hunger Fest is part retreat and part service project. During this overnight event, students fast in solidarity with the hungry, learn more about the realities of hunger and homelessness, and then make and deliver meals to various social organization in the greater Boston area.

Thanksgiving Food Drive

During November, Peer Ministers lead a campaign to gather donated canned items and packaged foods to create Thanksgiving food baskets for families in need in St. Patrick’s Parish. Students collected over 1,500 food items.









Senior Service

Each senior completes the Senior Service Capstone Project, which includes 60 hours of service at a site of the student’s choice.

Guided by their theology teachers, students research possible avenues of service, identify a site, and propose a service project as their capstone educational experience. Students are asked to focus their service projects on a community marginalized by poverty and injustice.

While advised by the Campus Ministry Office, each student has the responsibility to direct his own project to create a purposeful and meaningful experience.

Seniors recognize a genuine need in the community and think about how they will apply their gifts and talents in loving service to address this need.
