Religion Program

The Religion program at St. John School, with the mission to prepare students for everlasting life as its foundation, combines daily formal instruction with an active prayer life. The school motto, “Reverence, Respect and Responsibility,” fosters core Catholic values that are applied to all aspects of school life. A personal relationship with Jesus is encouraged through prayer, scripture study, catechetical instruction, and an emphasis on social justice. Relevant service opportunities bind the community together as we see Christ in every face we encounter.

Students serve as lectors, choir members, and altar servers during Mass. They deepen their faith and build community as they lead activities and worship services like the Catholic Charities Refugee Experience, the Living Rosary, Night of Giving based on the Corporal Works of Mercy, See You at the Pole, the Seven Sorrows of Mary and Living Stations of the Cross. With diligent attention to the religion program, both in its formal and informal aspects, we prepare the next generation of Catholics to know, love and serve the Lord in an ever-changing world. 

Religion is interwoven into all aspects of school life. Unique and effective components of the religious program at St. John School include morning assembly, vibrant worship, eucharistic adoration, cultural inclusion and meaningful service.
