We Share with Each Other and with Our Community

As instruments of the holiness of Christ, the clergy, administration, faculty, and staff of St. John the Apostle Catholic School lead the students to know their faith in its fullness. A sense of responsibility and an openness to give back to the world are instilled within each student.

Our students participate in liturgical/paraliturgical celebrations, youth groups, whole school masses, class masses, retreats, and prayer services. Additionally, a yearly Candlelight Procession, Passion Play, Living Rosary, and May Procession are fully participated in by all students. A Respect Life Project for single mothers and their unborn babies is held annually as well as food, clothing, and toy drives for the needy and the less fortunate. Students in the Service Club visit the elderly at local nursing homes, and our Student Council and National Junior Honor Society members go out into the community with a missionary spirit to assist local organizations with special projects. Students begin a journey of lived faith and spiritual development as they are prepared to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Communion and Confirmation in second and seventh grades, respectively.
