Christian Service is a requirement for graduation at Prep. As a Jesuit school, we believe that it is invaluable for each student to spend time serving the underprivileged of his community, witnessing and coming to understand a different way of life. To fulfill their Christian Service requirement, freshmen are required to spend a day in service with their homeroom. For the 2015-2016 school year, the assignments are:
Homeroom Activity Date
1A, Mr. Innis Picnic for Chidren from The Nurturing Place October 7, 2015
1B, Mr. Hollywood Saint Peter's University Campus Kitchen October 17, 2015
1C, Mr. Vaznelis Halloween Party for Hudson County Catholic Schools October 24, 2015
1D, Mr. Caulfield Board Games Night @ HANDS November 3, 2015
1E, Dr. Hartling Christmas Party at the Harborage December 5, 2016
1F, Mr. Que Saint Peter's University Campus Kitchen January 10, 2016
1G, Mr. Caslowitz Board Game Night @ HANDS March 8, 2016
1H, Coach Hansen III Easter Egg Hunt for Hudson County Catholic Schools March 12, 2016
1I, Mr. Campbell Senior Citizen Prom @ Little Sisters of the Poor in Totowa April 16, 2016
1J, Ms. Simonson Saint Peters University Campus Kitchen May 7, 2016
1K+1L, Ms. LaBruno + Mr. Keating Field Day for the Boys & Girls Club May 21, 2016


Additionally, students will attend an orientation session with me prior to their afternoon of service to prepare them, and a reflection session after to allow them to process their experience. These will take place during the freshman lunch period. Students will also be required to write a brief reflection paper. The questions for the reflection paper can be found HERE.

Freshmen must attend the day of service their homeroom is assigned. If the student ABSOLUTELY CANNOT attend that day, please contact Ms. Toomb at or (201) 547-6457 immediately to discuss other dates.
