The Department of Mission and Ministry helps student deepen their faith and understanding of the human experience. Within our Christian community, we encourage students to ask thoughtful questions about their faith. Our liturgies, retreats, seminars and service opportunities lead students to the answers they seek and help them make God known to others.
Worshipping together on Holy Days or at daily Mass, as an entire community or as a class, the Mass imparts the Sacred Mysteries in an approachable way.
Lasallian Peer Ministry
Peer Ministry is a senior elective class that begins with a leadership seminar, which prepares students to plan and facilitate retreats. Each Peer Minister serves as a mentor to a small group of freshmen to acclimate them to student life at St. John's. They also plan and manage the retreats for freshmen, sophomores and juniors. Students may apply to become Peer Ministers in the spring of their junior year.
