Christian Service

Purpose of Christian Service

“I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete.

Saint Joseph High School is a Catholic secondary school dedicated to transforming students in heart and mind, preparing them to serve God, the Church, and the world.


We at Saint Joseph High School recognize our mission as faculty and staff to help our students develop their God-given talents academically (grades), socially (extracurricular activities), and spiritually (faith and service).  


The night before he was crucified, our Lord knelt and washed the feet of his disciples.  He explained that to be a true follower, all must be willing and humble servants of the other.  Inextricably linking the sacrifice of the Mass with the gift of service, Jesus taught that love of God must always be united with love of neighbor.  


The Christian Service Program at Saint Joseph High School is meant to incorporate into each academic school year, the formal opportunity for our students to grow in their faith through the gift of self in service to God, the Church and the world.


“The life of Jesus is a life for others.  It is a life of service.” –Pope Francis
