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 Community Service.
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 emails entitled “Service Hours and Ministry Minutes.”
Each student is expected to complete the following number of hours during their time at PJP:
Freshmen 10 hours
Sophomores 12 hours
