Faith and Service
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. -John 13:34-35
We are called to love and serve one another by Jesus Christ. It is this command that guides us as we prepare young women to “lead and serve in a global society.” Service to others is a way of learning and forming the spirit of what it means to be a St. Joan Antida woman.
Through a rich faith experience and strong service learning component to the academic program, young women at St. Joan Antida High School develop socially and emotionally in the spirit of being caring, open-minded, and reflective. They become self-confident and mature young women who develop an ethic of service and an understanding of their role in making a positive impact on our global community.
Campus Ministry, Community Involvement and the Theology Department all strive to instill in our women the spirituality of Jeanne Antide and her motto, "Deus Solus," or God Alone. As part of our Catholic foundation, students at SJA participate in daily prayer, monthly Mass and student retreats where they have an opportunity to develop, nurture and grow their faith identity.
