In the tradition of Saint John Baptist de La Salle and the Brothers of the Christian Schools, Saint John Paul II Academy welcomes students of all faiths.

 

At Saint John Paul II Academy our Faith & Service programs are coordinated through our office of Campus Ministry.  The mission our Campus Ministry team is to enhance the faith, service, and community lives of all members of the SJPII family through the integration of liturgy, prayer, community service opportunities, and retreat programs.

In order to accomplish this, we reach across the entire School community involving nearly all of our faculty and staff in the execution of our mission.  This in and of itself is an extraordinary testimony to not only the importance of our programs, but also the recognition of the criticality of ministry in establishing the foundation of our young people as Men and Women of Faith, Character, and Integrity.

In keeping with the key Lasallian belief that "we are always and everywhere in the holy presence of God," our work with our students and families is centered on calling those whom we serve to prayerful service in the name of God.

With this reality, our Campus Ministry Program seeks to respond to the spiritual needs of our students, families, administration, faculty and staff in a variety of ways.

The spiritual life of our campus is rich with the programs and activities that seek to develop the virtues of faith, hope, and love. This can only be achieved through the Holy Spirit, in concert with a dedicated approach that involves students, parents, faculty, and staff.  Examples of our efforts include:

  • All-School & Class Liturgies & Prayer Services
  • The Sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation
  • Observance of Holy Days of Obligation
  • Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior Full-Class Retreats
  • Senior Kairos Retreat Program
  • Comprehensive Religious Education for All Grades
  • Prayers Offered at the Start of Each Day and Each Class
  • Community Service to the Poor and Needy
  • A Chapel that is open and accessible throughout the school day
  • Pastoral care provided by the School Chaplain and the Director of Campus Ministry

It is our goal to accept each individual where they are on their faith journey.   We invite you to come and pray, serve, and grow with us.

Live Jesus in our hearts forever!
