High School Youth Ministry


Youth Ministry at St. John the Evangelist is a ministry FOR and FROM our young people.  The primary goals of our youth ministry are to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today, to draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community, and to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.

Here's What's Coming Up: 

 Spring Break: No Class March 21st



Happy Spring Break y'all! Enjoy your week, get outside, have some fun, serve your families, and we'll see you for Holy Week on March 28th!


Happy Spring Break! We know many of our students and families enjoy taking trips or getting out of town to visit family and friends during their school's Spring Break. So we decided to take a Spring Break from Religious Ed classes as well.  We hope this week is one of rest and relaxation for you!  We will miss you, but we need the break as well! We'll see you March 28th!

This week-long program is a mission trip for young people that takes place within the diocese.  Participants stay at the host parish in simple, dormitory-style accomodations living in community, prepare their own meals together, pray together, join the parish for daily Mass, and work on various projects (painting, minor repairs, cleaning, yard work) for local families that are in need. The week begins on Sunday evening and ends by noon on Friday.
