Christian Service


“Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for these least children of mine, you did it for me.” (Mt. 25:45)

Service is essential to our lives as Christians and as members of the Paraclete community. We serve the Antelope Valley by integrating Christian service hours as a requirement for all students. 10 hours per semester are required for Freshmen and Sophomores. 15 hours per semester are required for Juniors and Seniors.

Where We Serve

We believe that a well-rounded education includes the opportunity for students to apply the things they’ve learned in the classroom to real world situations. Serving others offers practice in critical thinking and problem solving while having a positive effect on the community. Learning the value of hard work, the importance of team building, and a sense of responsibility enrich a Paraclete High School education.

What Students Say

“For the last five to six years I have been volunteering my free time in a special needs classroom at Esperanza Elementary and I wouldn’t have wanted to spend it any other way. Whether it is a half day on Friday or random days off, you will probably find me at Esperanza in room 202.

One Friday after school during my junior year I went to the school to help out like I usually do, but because I am a cheerleader I was wearing my cheer uniform. I walked into the classroom and every face lit up in there. It made me so happy that something I love to do inspired other little boys and girls. One of the girls walked up to me and said, ‘When I grow up, I want to be a cheerleader! Just like you!’ It made my heart melt.

To me, Christian Service is a way of serving others in the name of our school and in the name of God…I can understand why this is a requirement for our Catholic schools. Even if Christian Service was not a requirement, you would still find me in room 202 every half day that we have. I have unconditional love for those kids.”
