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.  Hands-on experiences such as the Mary's Way of the Cross, the Living Rosary, annual Night of Giving, Refugee Experience, and Livng Stations of the Cross help students to take part in their faith in a tangible way. 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.
