Christian service is a vital component of a Catholic, Lasallian education. Rooted in Christian values, the Lasallian experience prepares young men and women for lives dedicated to leadership, achievement, and service to their community. Throughout their St. John’s experience, students complete a minimum of 90 hours of direct service to different communities, including their family, their faith community, and the poor and marginalized.
Campus Ministry - The Department of Mission and Ministry helps students deepen their faith and understanding of the human experience through ample opportunities to get involved in living our Catholic, Lasallian mission. Our liturgies, retreats, seminars, and service opportunities lead students to the answers they seek and help them make God known to others.
Lasallian Youth - Lasallian Youth offers students a variety of opportunities to minister to the economically poor through direct service and education in the spirit of St. John Baptist de La Salle. Members assist in building a faith-filled community at St. John’s. Activities include collecting items for food and clothing drives, mission collections, service activities, and tutoring grade school students at the San Miguel School in Washington, DC. This group also assists other school clubs, teams, and faculty groups plan and participate in service projects.
- Social Justice Cadets - Our mission is to explore, discuss, and educate ourselves on social justice issues that affect our community and the world. We hope to spread awareness of human rights violations. The club will pick one issue each year and, through education and activism, work for tangible change. If you are passionate about justice and want to work for justice, this is the club for you.
- Prayer in the De La Salle Chapel - Prayer and meditation are important to everyday life. In addition to our weekly Mass (Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 7:00 am) additional opportunities are offered to pray together as a community. After school on Mondays, students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend Adoration from 3:00 pm to 3:30 pm, providing a direct experience of Christ in the Eucharist. On Friday mornings, prayer begins at 7:30 am and reflects on Gospel readings that correspond to Sunday's liturgy. There is no formal sign-up procedure; all students are encouraged to attend any services.
