OUR MISSION
CONTACT US

for the Youth of St. John of the Cross Parish:

 
To evangelize and form young disciples that strive to know, love and serve God and His Church.
That the youth act with virtue, fueled by the Sacraments and growing in daily personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Such that in their adulthood, they are confident and convicted in deep Catholic faith, so they may glorify and defend Our Lord in the public arena and inspire others just as the early Christians did under persecution, building the Kingdom.
