Christian Service Club

With almost 200 members, the Christians Service Cub (CSC) is one of the largest extra-curricular organizations at Bishop McDevitt.  Meetings are held monthly after school.  Throughout the school year, the CSC takes part in approximately 30 different service activities at McDevitt and the surrounding Harrisburg area.  Several of the activities are continuous throughout the entire year.  The Bishop McDevitt Christian Service Club, founded by Sister Rose Patrice in 1987, takes its spirit from the words of Jesus:

“Then the just will ask Him: Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you,or see you thirsty and give you drink? When did we welcome you away from home or clothe you in your nakedness? When did we visit you when you were ill or in prison? The king will answer them: ‘I assure you, as often as you did it for one of my least brothers, you did it for me.'” Matthew 25: 37-40

Bishop McDevitt’s Respect Life Club is a club that does what it says — it PROmotes LIFE.

The Respect Life Club has enjoyed tremendous growth over the past few years and our variety of activities has grown as well. The March for Life is an important part of the first half of the year. Students must earn 6 points to attend the march in January. Students earn a point for each activity they participate in. We encourage each student to participate in a variety of activity types to get a well rounded experience. Approximately 60 students have attended the March each of the last few years. Our spring retreat is always well attended and is the focus of the second half of the year. We are very proud of the level of commitment in the students and look forward to sharing another year with them.
