365 Youth Ministry

Donation Drive


This drive will go a long way to helping subsidize our youth ministry programs & events for 2019AD, hence the 365 name! 😊


Our youth movement with its many initiatives relies on the generosity of our parishioners… parents, grandparents and all who want to see a bright future in our Church – there is hope!


Each donation in this annual drive will lighten the financial load for families to be able to have their children participate in faith formation nights, engaging conferences, transformative retreats, fun camps, have cool SJOC branded gear, along with helping pay for transportation and other logistical needs. The registration fees across the board will be reduced with your help.


Each envelope (from $5-$365) is labeled to give you the knowledge on how your donation will be used to further the spiritual growth of our Catholic youth at St. John of the Cross.

Please support us by grabbing an envelope after Mass sometime soon.


Note: You may make a donation as a pair/group or from another ministry within the parish (or non-parishioners), however, it would not qualify for a tax receipt.
To obtain a tax receipt, all the info in the envelope will need to be completed.
Donations can be more or less what is noted on the envelope, all amounts are appreciated and will be put towards the cause noted on the envelope.
Special thanks to our PRIME TIME Club who stitched this humungous board!
