Community Service: ALL MIDDLE SCHOOL & HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN TWO COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS DURING THE YEAR (September 1, 2016 – August 31, 2017)
“Although I have lived through much darkness, under harsh totalitarian regimes, I have seen enough evidence to be unshakably convinced that no difficulty, no fear is so great that it can completely suffocate the hope that springs eternal in the hearts of the young. You are our hope, the young are our hope. Do not let that hope die! Stake your lives on it! We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures; we are the sum of the Father's love for us and our real capacity to become the image of his Son."

The mission of St. John Paul II's Youth Ministry is to help Middle School and High School students become rooted in Christ. Christ "fully reveals man to himself" and only in Christ can we find our true purpose and meaning for life. So, as a group, we work towards understanding who God is, His love for us, the teachings of His Church, and how we are called to be His saints. We learn to support one another in charity in order to become living witnesses to God's life changing love.
