We want YOUR TEEN to be a part of our youth ministry program! Our dynamic formation program focuses on four points: education, prayer, service and community. From serving our community (both in and out of the parish) to diving into and discussing church teachings, our goal is to create a community where all teens feel welcome and are excited to participate in their faith. EVERY TEEN AT ST. JOHN’S SHOULD BE ATTENDING YOUTH GROUP. Please encourage your teen to step out of the norm and invite them to join us Sundays after the 5pm Teen Mass. We will do our best to keep everyone informed with what’s going on and if you ever have any questions please feel free to contact Youth Ministry Director Mikey Abbondandolo via email, phone or text (713-562-2113).
Our first class is October 6th 3:00pm-4:30pm (parents and teens are required at this class). Register for classes at 2019-2020 Confirmation Prep Registration
