Our Ministries

At St. John’s we strive to be faithful to fill out Christ’s Great Commission, “Go out and make disciples.” We aim to be devoted to the formation of our disciples through our youth Religious Education programs, through our Sacramental Prep programs, and with many ongoing educational opportunities.

Religious Education

Faith Formation, Religious Education, Sunday School, or CCD, no matter what you call it, it’s typically thought of as the Religion Classes for the kids who attend public schools; at St. John, we want to invite EVERYONE to participate and as strange as it sounds: there is no registration, no sign up, no fee, and no formal attendance taken. Our Religious Education is now directly connected to the Sunday Mass for the whole family.
