Through participation in the Campus Ministry service programs, Magnificat students answer the call to live Mary’s Magnificat in the world. Students are encouraged to participate in a variety of service opportunities. An important component of these programs includes ongoing prayer and reflection that invites the students to connect their service experience with their faith in ever-deeper ways. By extending themselves in humility, compassion, and love, students directly experience the profound truth that in giving we receive.
The service programs at Magnificat have taught me that it is important throughout my life to be grateful for what God gives me, and to share this feeling with others by making a life-long commitment to service.
In these programs, students commit themselves to participate on a consistent basis, either for a semester or for the entire school year.
Students from all grade levels participate in after-school tutoring program at Our Lady of Mount Carmel each week., where they are paired in a one-on-one relationship. As tutors, the Magnificat students assist the grade school children with their school work and serve as positive role models through their friendship and leadership.

As I reflect on my experience as a tutor, one thing that I think is important for you to know is that I truly loved my four years as a tutor. I've learned a lot from each student I worked with such as compassion, perseverance, and patience. I am so glad that I have gone through this program and it is one of the highlights of my high school experience
