Calling all armchair travelers!

Journey with us to RISE: The Greatest Event You’ll Never Attend!

No need to buy a dress or put on a tie. No need to even pack a bag—it takes just one easy step to book your passage.

That’s it! Now sit back, relax, and enjoy the trip. Throughout the month of May, bite-sized bits of armchair travel will be delivered direct to your inbox. And as our journey continues, you will find the same media right on this website.

RISE takes the place of JPII’s annual Take Flight Scholarship Luncheon and Light & Truth Gala, offering supporters a safe and entertaining opportunity to support Pope John Paul II High School.

We thank our RISE community partners whose sponsorship support ensures that every dollar raised through RISE 2021 will directly impact JPII students.
