The St. Philip Neri Service Leadership Club supports, trains and empowers students to be leaders in making a significant impact in our world to help the poor, the sick and the oppressed.
 
OP Rams leap to do good
without hesitation
Creating new paths
Driven by the Spirit
A brotherhood, a family
Where brothers unite!
 
Our Mission is to carry the flame of the Holy Spirit and ignite others to join us as “OP Brothers Doing Good in the World”.  Following the spirit of our patron saint, Philip Neri, we are called to bring the love and compassion of Jesus, our Lord, to the local and global communities. 
 
We have three primary initiatives to help alleviate the suffering in our world:
 
•    Feed the Hungry - Matthew 25:34-40 
•    Oppressed & Marginalized – Social Justice Action
•    Preferential Option for the Poor – Perform Corporal Works of Mercy
   
The doctrine and teachings of Pope Francis are the guiding precepts for our Student Governing Board. The members of the St. Philip Neri Service Leadership Club live their Catholic faith in solidarity with their brothers and sisters in the school community and across the globe. We pray together at Morning Mass; we share in the breaking of the bread: we laugh in the joyful spirit of Philip Neri; and we serve the Lord together with our “yes” to do His holy will.
 
Every Thursday afternoon, our “Minyan” of student leaders gathers as One voice in Chapel to pray the Rosary for our family intentions and the needs of the world. Their Bro-Care Program prepares and sends prayer cards/packages to the elderly, those who are ill, and the lonely. We also have designed a program to recognize the Do-Gooders in our own school community. 
 
If you are looking to join a brotherhood, a team of students full of the OP Ram Spirit leading the way, then this Club is for you.
