Pope John XXIII High School firmly believes that the role of faith is essential and has a tremendous impact on all aspects of our lives. Our dynamic campus ministry program is committed to playing a vital role in forming the minds and hearts of our students. This program involves and serves the entire faculty and staff, our student body, and all of our families.
LITURGY - The liturgy, particularly the celebration of the Eucharist, is the source and summit of our lives. As such, we celebrate all-school Masses every Wednesday with the full involvement of our entire school community.
SERVICE - Through our dynamic Works of Mercy service program, we strive to promote lives dedicated to service. As our students develop and express a love of God and of neighbor through their participation in the Corporal & Spiritual Works of Mercy, they strive to become beacons of light for the world.
RETREATS AND EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES - To foster spiritual growth, we provide various opportunities for students to progress on their own spiritual journeys and to experience all that God has in store for them. This includes yearly class retreats, LOV - "Ladies of Virtue" Club, MOB - "Men of the Beatitudes" Club, Pro Life Club, Kairos Retreats, and various vocation awareness events. Building on and supplementing our rigorous academic program, we provide regular formation for our students, faculty, and parents.
We share the same excitement and hope that Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has in our young men and women. Speaking to the youth of Brazil, he states that youth ought to live life “with enthusiasm and with joy, but most of all, with a sense of responsibility…Christ is calling you to be saints…I see you as Christ sees you; with a gaze of love and trust…do not waste your youth. Do not seek to escape from it. Live it intensely. The Church needs you, as young people, to manifest to the world the face of Jesus Christ, visible in the Christian community” (5,7).
We at Pope John are truly blessed, with students, family, and staff who live their faith lives intensely and responsibly. May God continue to bless our school community as we strive to faithfully live the call to love God and neighbor with all of our mind and heart.
All parents are invited to come before our Lord in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the chapel on Fridays during this school year. Spending time in the presence of Christ can transform our lives and our school by the grace of God. Parents can sign up for the Fridays and hour of their choice. Sign up by emailing Becky Neeson or at this link.
