We live our school motto: Reverence, Respect and Responsibility.
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. Relevant service opportunities bind the community together as we see Christ in every face we encounter.
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, cultural inclusion and meaningful service.
Relevant community service reinforces Life in Christ and Catholic Social Teaching. Speakers share personal experiences and describe the needs of those whom they serve: Soldiers returning from Iraq (Card Project), Youth Shelter Director (School Supplies Project); CDC Director (Nothin’ but Nets Project - mosquito nets for the children in Africa), and Hospice Nurse (Cancer Home Project). 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.
