High School Youth Ministry
The St. John High School Youth Ministry offers a variety of programs that meet the spiritual needs of our 9-12th grade community of believers by building relationships, participating in service activities and social events, and being a part of the greater Christian community. We will be walking with you through your faith journey teaching you how to respond to real life situations.
A Friend for the Journey
Sunday, Feb. 10 - 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. Youth Room in Favret Hall
Our faith life is an ongoing journey. This Sunday, we will discuss our friends along this journey and how we can rely on our friends on our journey of faith. As with every youth night we will have a social hour to end our evening. Social hour includes board games, video games, and time to relax together before beginning a new week.
Was Jesus Lonely?
Sunday, Feb. 24 – 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. Youth Room in Favret Hall
Loneliness is something we all experience. Our faith teaches us that Jesus was fully human and divine, but did he feel lonely? We will explore this through Scripture and discuss ways we can cope with loneliness. As with every youth night we will have a social hour to end our evening. Social hour includes board games, video games, and time to relax together before beginning a new week.
Strength in Numbers: High School Retreat
Saturday, April 6 in Favret Hall - 10:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. (ending with 5:00 p.m. Mass)
Join us for a day of prayer, music, laughter and joy. St. Michael’s and St. John are joining together with the help of Net Ministries for a wonderful retreat open to all high school students. Our theme is Strength in Numbers. The cost to attend the retreat is $25.00. You can pay online, by check, or by cash. Checks should be made out to St. John Church. Registration forms and medical release forms for the event are available online, in the Parish, and Church offices. Forms and payment are due by Wednesday, March 27. Below is a description of the retreat from Net Ministries!
True friends walk together through their weakness. Betrayal, gossip, and scandal: these traits often characterize friendships portrayed in the entertainment industry. What if our friendships, were instead marked by support no matter the circumstances? This theme explores the role of authentic friendships and their ability to empower us to greatness.

High School Youth Nights
We are shaking things up this year with our high school youth night structure. We will gather at 6:30 p.m. in the youth room and we will gather together for introductions and opening prayer before splitting into small groups.
Our small groups will be divided by grade. We will be in small groups for the first 1 hour of youth night. Small groups will include games, fellowship with peers, prayer, and a chance to grow in your faith. At 7:30 p.m. we will gather back together as a large group for games, fellowship, and closing prayer. Students are more than welcome to leave after small group or come at 7:30 p.m. for large group.
Snacks and drinks will be provided and we take requests! We hope you will join us this year at our youth nights!
