"Prayer helps us to rediscover the loving face of God. He never abandons his people but guarantees that, notwithstanding trials and suffering, good triumphs in the end."
Pope John Paul II
We have such a great need for a community of believers praying daily for our community. It is only by prayer that the hearts of our students and all in school community can be free to fully love and serve God as we ought.
This is an invitation for anyone who wishes to share in our mission to effectively evangelize our community. A prayer partner make a commitment to pray daily our school prayer which calls upon, the very powerful, intersession of Pope John Paul II to benefit of our entire school community. There also are three levels of commitment for our prayer partners.
All of the prayer partners, if not already, become members of the Pope John Paul II High School Community and become sharers in all the graces and blessings of our community. Our goal is to have everyone who are already members of the PJP School Community become a Prayer Partner and also try to get as many additional people that Our Lord allows to become Prayer Partners.
Level 1: On a daily bases pray one Our Father, one Hail Mary, one Glory Be, and the school prayer (can down load the school prayer) for the PJP community.
Level 2: On a daily bases pray The Rosary and pray the school prayer (can down load the school prayer) for the PJP community.
Level 3: On a daily bases pray a Holy Hour or pray daily Mass and pray the school prayer (can down load the school prayer) for the PJP community.
Our Mission statement says, “Pope John Paul II High School forms Catholic students to be full and practicing members of the Church .” We depend total on the grace of God at work in our school community to achieve this end for without God we will fail, but with God all things are possible.
There are many forces at work against us achieving our purpose
- Our secular culture encourages us to eject God from our lives making ourselves the center of our reality, instead of God.
- Moral Relativism erodes morality, giving us the false impression that we decide what is right and wrong, instead of God.
- The family is no longer a given as a secure and safe place to grow with God.
- Temptation to drinking, drugs, and sexual promiscuity are ever present in the lives of the teens.
- The living out of the Faith has lessened, with only 23% of all Catholics attends Mass weekly, and the majority of Catholics do not make use of The Sacrament of Confession.
In the face of such formidable opposition to the effective faith formation of our students, we never lose hope. Our Lord looked defeated on the Cross and triumphed in the end. Once again he will triumph. Through the intersession of Blessed John Paul II this will be brought about by prayer, a lot of prayer.
Pope John Paul II High School
Q: When praying the rosary or going to daily Mass or attending a Holy Hour to fulfill my commitment as a prayer partner am I allowed to pray for other intersession as well or can it only be for the Pope John Paul II High School Community?
A: When praying these prayers as a Golden Panther you can also pray for whatever else you desire. You simply need to make sure that the PJPII community is one of your intensions. Being a Prayer Partner is ideal for those who already pray a daily Rosary, or a Holy Hour or Daily Mass. The only addition would be praying the school prayer.
