Adults: be a partner in youth ministry
At St. John, our goal is to offer a wide variety of youth activities and programs to inspire and equip every young person in the parish to live in a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ. The only way this is possible will be if many adults step forward to serve the youth.
You can help by: committing to pray for the youth and adult volunteer leaders, supporting the practical needs of our youth ministries (like snacks and meals), or helping to lead a youth ministry activity (such as Sunday nights, Sports nights, Movie nights, “Going deeper groups”, activities for younger kids, or your ideas)
Other opportunities for youth...
St. John participates in the Arlington Diocese' CYO program. Youth who attend St. John Academy or are enrolled in religious education may play on one of our boys' or girls' teams. Basketball is offered from November - March, and Girls' Volleyball takes place in the spring semester. Contact Michael for more information: [email protected]
