"Love one another...as I have loved you." -John 13:34-35
At JPII, you will engage in a variety of meaningful Christian service experiences each year. You will learn about yourself, the needs of others and the environment around you, and your abilities to become change agents in the world. These experiences will help you see that making a difference in others’ lives is as rewarding an experience as you can have.
Students volunteer at nursing homes, coach and facilitate at Special Olympics, tutor at elementary schools, or serve as youth coaches or leaders.
The Christian Service Program helps students see and meet the needs of others as Jesus has taught us.

- Altar service and readers at home parishes
