St. John Youth Ministries serves ALL youth in our area from 8th grade up to and 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.
We meet on Sunday nights from 5:30 - 7:00 pm in the Jr. High building.
Some of our annual events are: Mission Trip to Jackson, Ky., Youth Renew youth retreat experience here on our grounds, Youth Renew “road teams” to other parishes, Christmas caroling in the Harrison area and at Mt. St. Joe, Christmas in Jackson, Postponing Sexual Involvement series, and door-to-door canned food collection.
Our mission at S.J.Y.M. is to SERVE ALL YOUTH! We use a Total Youth Ministry model. We are open to and welcome all suggestions and ideas and encourage you to call us at 513-367-9086, Ext. 218.
