Footprints in the Sand


Nolan Catholic High School integrates theology into its core curriculum. We are an active and caring community, grounded in the values of our Catholic faith.

NCHS is an educational ministry of the Catholic Diocese of Forth Worth whereby students receive religious instruction and participate in religious services. A student’s coursework includes theology classes each of his or her four years and weekly attendance at Mass. Students have prayer each morning before lunch and at the end of the day. Students attend assemblies and retreats to learn about morality, ethics and the challenges of maintaining a healthy spiritual life in today’s world.

Students also engage in outreach to the community, doing good works as part of their Christian Ministry curriculum requirement.


“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it, you shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Mt 22:36-39

The life of a Christian should be one of loving service to others which leaves a #footprint of God’s love in the world. The Christian Ministry Program of Nolan Catholic High School is an opportunity to explore the many ministry opportunities of the Church and of the greater community. Every Nolan Catholic student must earn a minimum of 75 Christian Ministry service hours by the beginning of their Senior year. For more information, please refer to the Nolan Catholic Student-Parent Handbook section VII. Campus Ministry B. Christian Ministry Requirements

Service Hours

Nolan Catholic High School partners with intellivol to provide our students with an online platform to log and track their service hours. Once students are registered and trained at Nolan, they can go to x2VOL to login and begin logging their service hours. Students can also download the x2VOL app to log and monitor their hours on their smartphones.
