McNicholas is excited to welcome Father Kevin Scalf of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood as School Chaplain and Theology Teacher.
We are called by our faith to serve, and this calling shapes all that we do at McNicholas High School.
Students at McNicholas are immersed in a service-oriented culture and challenged to put their faith into action in our school, our city, our nation, and our world. Students find that their experiences of service through McNicholas greatly impact their sense of purpose, shape their understanding of their vocation, and form them to be people who embrace Christian service as a way of life.
In addition to service-learning and immersion experiences in Cincinnati and rural Tennessee, our students support many school-wide service projects such as Gifts of Hope which supports Hope Emergency, the St. Patrick’s Day ‘Senior’ Prom that supports clients at Sem Haven Nursing Facility, and our annual Penny Drive for Change that supports the CISE Fund and Project Education.
Students can also get involved in these service and social justice-minded groups.
“As Christians, we are called to be salt and light for the earth, and at McNick we are called to strive to grow in full stature towards Christ. SVDP encourages students to do that actively in our community, which has a positive effect on the whole of our society.”
