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.
Students are encouraged to serve the elderly, homeless, children, and the disabled. They are encouraged to assist soup kitchens, Catholic Social Services sites, nursing homes, and their own parish or church.
Christian Service opportunities are offered to students through the School Ministry Office and are communicated via postings in the “Christian Service” Schoology site in which all students are enrolled.
During COVID-19, students are expected to complete the following number of hours:
Freshmen: 2.5 Hours
Sophomores: 3 Hours
Juniors: 4 Hours
Seniors: 5 Hours
After completing their Christian Service Hours, students will complete a reflection essay that is designed to help them to connect their service experience with what they have learned in their Theology classes. The essay prompts are posted on Schoology and are to be completed and submitted on Schoology once all of the hour logs have been completed on MobileServe.
