Christian Service

Caroline ‘17

I traveled with a group of Paul VI faculty and students on a Domestic Mission to serve others who are less fortunate and reflect on our individual relationships with God. The trip was a gift and a place where we spent time in prayer, attended daily Mass, played games with the local children and performed manual labor.
Each Paul VI student serves others so that they may experience Christ firsthand.
Whether they work with the very young, the very old, the hungry, the sick, or anyone else in need, our student volunteers stretch beyond their comfort zone to make a difference. It is one of the critical ways we live out the Gospel and come to see Christ in the poor and marginalized.
 
Some students work with at-risk kids. Some feed the hungry or the homeless. Some students serve as peer mentors in our Options program. Some help in their parish churches. Each student volunteers for a minimum of 10 hours per academic year in the community with a pre-approved organization.
Paul VI Catholic High School is a private college preparatory school for girls and boys in grades 9-12 in Fairfax, Virginia, seeking to help our students Grow in Grace and Wisdom. Our Washington area prep school is part of the Diocese of Arlington and offers rigorous academics, an inclusive community focused on spiritual and leadership formation, and a proud athletic tradition featuring competitive Division I high school athletics in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference.
