SERVICE MISSION STATEMENT

Scranton Prep’s Christian Service Program is dedicated to providing opportunities that foster personal and spiritual growth, put faith into action, and instill compassion for and commitment to others in the tradition of St. Ignatius of Loyola. 

Why do Scranton Prep students do Service?

The mission of the Society of Jesus has been, from its inception, to do all things “for the greater glory of God”. Service in the Ignatian tradition is an integral part of the Jesuit educational experience at Scranton Prep. Our students come from all over Northeastern Pennsylvania with a variety of gifts and talents that, we believe, are blessings from God. For this we are grateful. Therefore, in the spirit of gratitude we are called to serve others as is prescribed in Luke’s Gospel… “To whom much has been given, much is required.” Many graduates often refer to the fulfillment of their “requirement” as a lasting part of their Prep experience. It gives us the opportunity to be open to our growth and committed to doing justice.
