High School (Youth) Ministry

The youth ministry team at St. John’s strives to engage students all year long. We challenge students as well as ourselves to live as Jesus’ disciples and continue to learn and grow in faith. We recognize that faith formation happens in the family first and that we are partners in efforts that begin at home.

The planned Early Out Service Wednesday for February 13 has been canceled due to the change of the school schedule at Mount Vernon. We will look for dates in upcoming months.
