“What kind of man is needed today? A man who is a ‘man for others,’ gifted with conscience, intelligence and power, called out of himself, to give himself to others in love. Only he who loves fully realizes himself as a man.” – Pedro Arrupe, S.J., Former Superior General, Society of Jesus
“The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution which has to start with each one of us.” – Dorothy Day
It is an annual gathering for members of the Ignatian family (Jesuit institutions and larger church) to gather in the context of social justice and solidarity to learn, reflect, pray, network, and advocate together. It is a place where people are empowered, re-energized, inspired, challenged, and supported by a community that sees faith and justice integrally linked.
The deadline to submit Christian Service logs for this academic year is Friday, May 10, at 11:59 PM. All service logs must be submitted through the student’s MobileServe account.
Resources for where to engage in service are listed in the student’s Christian Service Google Classroom page. The events listed in MobileServe are ONLY the events Jesuit coordinates. While students are welcome to sign up for these, they are NOT limited to these service opportunities.
Jesuit High School is a Roman Catholic college preparatory dedicated to forming competent young men into conscientious leaders in compassionate service to others for the greater glory of God. Through selective, intentional direct service and structured reflection on their action, the Christian Service Program at Jesuit High School seeks to assist in the formation of graduates who embody the profile of a graduate of a Jesuit school at graduation. Namely, students will be: open to growth, intellectually competent, religious, loving, and committed to doing justice.
In line with our mission and graduation requirements, all students at Jesuit High School are required to participate in Christian Service during each of their years at Jesuit High School. Each grade level has its own requirements that are explained in an in-class orientation at the beginning of each school year.
Freshman and Sophomore students are allowed to complete some of their service requirement in on-campus service opportunities that directly benefit Jesuit High School. Such opportunities will be advertised in Google Classroom as they become available.
As part of the curriculum at Jesuit High School, students have a yearly Christian Service requirement. We encourage students to incorporate service into their regular routine, and we also provide graded (Pass/Fail) quarterly benchmarks to help students to stay on track with their service commitment throughout the school year.
