Cura Urbi -关爱城市

St. 约瑟夫’s Prep and the City of Philadelphia are intricately tied. 170多年来, the Prep has been nestled in the heart of the city, working to educate young boys who will become leaders in our world. In 1966, a terrible fire destroyed much of the school’s physical campus and the Jesuits who ran the Prep had a decision to make: leave the city to reestablish itself in the suburbs, or stay in a North Philadelphia neighborhood that was changing. Conventional wisdom said to leave but the Jesuits are anything but conventional. 他们选择留在17街和吉拉德街,现在, 50多年后, they look inspired as the school and city continue to be intertwined.


Our work is characterized by loyalty to the Church, 服务可用性, 和对基督崇高的爱.

冰球突破豪华版官网提供的教育有以下特点 ”看台personalis。” which means attention to the individual student and respect for the individual’s potential and pace in learning. Jesuit education is characterized by adaptability to individual differences and needs, as well as to wider needs determined by a reading of the signs of the times.

We routinely engage in the practice of discernment, an effort to choose wisely in worldly matters by striving to align personal and institutional choice with the will of God. 冰球突破豪华版官网与学生分享这种做法, helping them to choose wisely and well as they mature into men for and with others.

“The graces of the Spiritual exercises are meant to inspire us to serve others.”
——牧师. Steve Surovick, S.J.宣教和事工高级主任

Through prayer and reflection participants were drawn into a deeper relationship with God. 夫人. 珍妮火星, 主厅经理和参与者, looks forward to influencing Prep students on Kairos or on service trips. “​I hope that I can share this experience with our students so that they can learn, 在更年轻的时候, that a relationship with God can grow and evolve.”
