CORE VALUES
(AJPS CARES)
Archdiocese of Jaro Parochial
schools
CHARITY
Love is patient, Love is kind. It does not envy, it
does not boast, it is not proud. It does not
dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not
easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with
the truth. It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres. “ (Cor. 13:4 -7)
AFFABILITY
The quality of being affable; readiness to
converse; courteousness in receiving others and
in conversation: “Affability is of a wonderful
efficacy or power in procuring love. ”(Webster)
The trait of affability combines two traits: to
be affable means to be amiable or easy to speak
to, but it also means to be mild, gentle or benign.
RESPONSIBILITY
“From everyone who have been
given much, much will be
demanded; and from the one who
has been entrusted with much,
much more will be asked” (Luke
12:48)
EXCELLENCE
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things
(are) true, whatsoever things (are) honest,
whatsoever things (are) just, whatsoever
things (are) pure, whatsoever things (are)
lovely, whatsoever things (are) of good
report, if (there be) any virtue, and if
(there be) any praise, think of these things.
(Phil. 4:8)
SERVICE
“ And serve each other according to the gift each
person has received, as good managers of God’s diverse
gifts. “
The purpose of service is so that God can reach others
through our hands. In 2 Cor. 9:12-13, St. Paul says that the
service we provide not only meets needs but expresses
thanks to God and leads others to praise God. He also said
that service builds up the “body of Christ”. In 1 Cor. 12,
he explains that there are different kinds of service (v.4) and
then identifies many ways to provide service to others.
