Modeling themselves on the person of Jesus, Pope John Paul II High School students serve others and the community around them through a Christian Service Program which has been integrated into the PJP curriculum.
Each student, in the course of his or her four years at PJP, will complete 58 hours of Christian Service to the community.
Students are encouraged to serve the elderly, homeless, children, and the disabled. They are encouraged to serve at soup kitchens, Catholic Social Services sites, nursing homes, and their own parish or church.
Numerous Christian Service opportunities are offered to students through the School Ministry Office and are communicated via postings in the “Christian Service” Google Classroom site in which all students are enrolled.
Each student is expected to complete the following number of hours during their time at PJP:
Freshmen 10 hours
Sophomores 12 hours
Juniors 16 hours
Seniors 20 hours
After completing their Christian Service Hours, students will complete a series of reflection questions which are designed to help them to connect their service with what they have learned in their Theology classes. These questions are posted on Google Classroom and are to be completed during the 3rd marking quarter.
