Faith Life » Service


Service is an integral part of each student’s Catholic education at St. Josaphat School – an experience of both giving and receiving from those served. The school’s service program is designed to help students become aware of the varying needs of others and to respond actively to those needs. Parental involvement provides students with Christian role models and promotes students’ independent desire to serve others.

Service Alms Giving
During the Lenten season students donate money for a special cause.
Altar Serving
Altar servers assist the priest at school and weekend liturgies, as well as funerals and weddings. Training is offered every school year for students in fifth grade and above.

Helping Hands Ministry
St. Josaphat Parish leads Helping Hands Ministry which feeds meals to the
homeless from our community every year. When age appropriate, students may participate by making sandwiches, packing lunches and distributing meals.
Catholic Schools Week
St. Josaphat School participates in Catholic Schools Week, which celebrates the importance of Catholic education in the United States.  The weeklong celebration includes masses, pep rallies, open houses, and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, we focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our Church and our community.
