The mission of St. John the Evangelist Youth Ministry is to help our children place Jesus Christ at the center of their lives.
We are committed to leading them to develop a great love of Jesus and to appreciate His special Presence in the Eucharist. We aim to help them to understand what a great gift we have been given.
Youth Ministry at St John the Evangelist is made up of five different age groups. We call this our Continuum of Care:
Even in the youngest students, we attempt to help them recognize the needs of others. Each group participates in a variety of service projects – from bringing in canned goods as admission to a planned event for the younger students to collecting and distributing blankets and sandwiches on Lower Wacker Drive in Chicago for our high school students.
