Community Service

Through carefully cultivated partnerships with parishes, non-profits, and other community service entities, the Community Service and Outreach Program at JPII develops and empowers our students to become well-formed and equipped leaders for their church and communities. 

Our Purpose

Living out our motto, Seek to Serve, students witness our Catholic faith by serving the last, the lost, and the least among us. Inspired by the Holy Spirit and guided by Catholic Social Teaching, they engage with those in need in our community, becoming Christ for others. Along the way, students discover their talents and gifts and how they can use them to build up the body of Christ for the greater glory of God.

Community Service & Outreach Guidelines

As Christians, we are called to serve in the name of God and for the benefit of our neighbors. Our school motto, “Seek to Serve,” echoes this call. Through hands-on service and interpersonal encounters, all students are required to obtain community service hours that align with the 7 themes of Catholic Social Teaching and that correlate to the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy.

All students in the Classes of 2023, 2024, and 2025 must earn 3 community service hours each quarter for a total of 12 hours per school year. Seniors must complete all required hours in order to participate in the graduation ceremony. Not completing 3 hours each quarter will result in ineligibility for extra-curricular participation. If students in the Classes of 2023, 2024, and 2025 complete 120 service hours over the course of their four years of high school, they will earn the community service cord, which will be worn at graduation. 
 
The Class of 2026 will complete 2 community service hours each quarter, for a total of 8 hours during their freshman year. Sophomore, junior, and senior requirements will increase incrementally for the Class of 2026 and beyond. Students must earn 200 service hours over the course of their four years in high school to earn the community service cord that is worn at graduation. 
 
Students will have opportunities on and off campus to earn hours. The Community Service Coordinator will assist students with this call to find their passion as they grow and transform into the next generation of well-formed leaders for their church and communities.
 
As a community that seeks to serve, we encourage all students to explore a variety of service opportunities in preparation for future service requirements.
