Students can access all Service and Justice resources in their
grade-level Service and Justice Google Classroom Page. Resources
available there include:
- As of October 22, 2020, we are again able to support students
in choosing in-person service. If this policy needs to change
given changes in public health guidance, we will notify students
through Google Classroom, and update posts in the Weekly Update
email and the website.
- Students are still able to complete their Service and Justice
requirement through remote opportunities. Specific
approved activities and agencies are available for
students in the Service and Justice Google Classroom page, and
here. Students are also welcome to propose their own
project for review and approval.
Jesuit facilitates service and justice work in the community
throughout the student’s tenure at JHS. Through programming
coordinated by the Office of Service and Justice, students are
guided into direct service with our neighbors who experience
acute need or some form of marginalization. Students are invited
to serve with people experiencing chronic hunger, with children
in under-resourced schools, with young adults living with
developmental delays, with people living in homelessness, with
elderly adults in assisted living centers, and with agencies
responding to, as Pope Francis states in Laudato Si, “both the
cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.” Students are also
invited into the work of faith-based advocacy for justice.
Service is an active response to our faith; a faith that is
inspired by and pursues the example of Jesus by feeding the
hungry, clothing the naked, visiting the sick, and inviting the
outcast into friendship. In doing this we are able to grow closer
to God and all of God’s beloved creation. In giving ourselves
away we receive more than we could ever imagine.
