St. John Youth Ministries serves ALL youth in our area Kindergarten through 12th grade. We offer a wide variety of events, activities, projects and happenings. We support our parish through Stewardship, sharing of time, talent and treasure. We volunteer for parish events and school events as well as our annual summer festival. We also serve as Religious Education catechists and aides, Lectors and ExtraOrdinary Ministers of Holy Communion. We invite and encourage all youth in this age group to participate and bring their friends in order to spread the Gospel message.
Youth in grades K-6 are supported through events like Vacation Bible School, Fun in the Sun, Water Olympics and Parent Date nights. They do not meet on a regular schedule throughout the year.
