Message from the School Minister

“Young people, Christ needs you to enlighten the world and to show it the "path to life" (Ps 16,11). The challenge is to make the Church’s "yes" to life concrete and effective. The struggle will be long, and it needs each one of you. Place your intelligence, your talents, your enthusiasm, your compassion and your fortitude at the service of the Church!

Saint John Paul II ~ World Youth Day Homily, Denver, CO 1993



Message from the Director of School Ministry


At Pope John Paul II High School, we strive to be not afraid to seek the splendor of truth and to live the gospel of life, in imitation of Pope Saint John Paul II. Each day we seek to fulfill this lofty goal by providing our students with opportunities to encounter Jesus Christ in Word, Sacrament, and activities which will assist them in cultivating a unique and personal relationship with the Lord Jesus.

The Office of School Ministry is responsible for providing these opportunities for the students, faculty, and staff to grow and mature in their Catholic faith.

Through the Ministry Office, the Pope John Paul II community celebrates our Catholic faith and identity daily. As our late Holy Father said, “We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.”
