Community Service

As one of our Core S.H.I.E.L.D. values, service is at the heart of our mission at John Paul II Catholic School.  While students are encouraged to seek opportunities for service, we do not simply ask our students to “check a box” by meeting a minimum requirement; instead, we provide students with multiple opportunities to serve our school community, local parishes and missions, our greater community, and through our Annual Senior Mission Trip, far beyond.  Our hope is that every one of our students discovers the beautiful and intrinsic desire to live out the Good News in service to others.   

Additionally, with SERVICE as the starting point of our S.H.I.E.L.D. values, we made the decision a few years ago to emphasize the importance of living our lives centered on caring for our community on the feast day of our patron, Saint John Paul II.  As we celebrate the life and ministry of Pope John Paul II, we remember these words, “…we are the sum of the Father's love for us and our real capacity to become the image of His Son Jesus.” And there is no better way to become the image of Jesus Christ than through service to our community.

Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.

Matthew 25:40
