Youth Group and Religious Education Classes
Religious education classes teach children and youth about their Catholic faith and prepare them for the sacraments.
Classes meet from 10:15 to 11:15 a.m. Sundays during the school year. Students also participate in youth service projects.
FIRST COMMUNION: First Communion classes will begin in January. Any family wishing to have their child prepared for First communion, please let Lynn Gonzalez or Tom Voglewede know.
WORKING WITH YOUTH: Anyone who works with the youth of our parish, or think they might like to, there will be a two hour VIRTUS training (Keeping children safe) here at St. John's on Friday, February 20, 2015,from 10:00 am to noon. Mary Jane Fuller will be coming down from Roanoke that morning to teach the course. There is no cost. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Tom Voglewede at 276-782-0522.
YOUTH: The youth of our parish have decided to use the money they raised from the Thanksgiving raffle (about $135.) to buy items for patients at our local nursing homes. Anyone who has extra items at home such as lotion, body wash, shampoo, toothpaste, hand sanitizer that are not being used and would like to donate them, please bring them to church and give them to one of our youth. Thank you.
