This is Who We Are!

St. John CHS
 
 
OUR MISSION
 
       
 The ultimate outcome for the graduate of
St. John Catholic High School is that he or she will
have gained a sense that they exist as a thriving
expression of the life of God within them.
 
 
In order to see this outcome realized, all programs at St. John Catholic High School are infused with the Gospel values of Jesus Christ. These values are taught as we collectively practice the virtues of faith, love, hope, justice, temperance, fortitude, and prudence.
 
 
FAITH
 Believing in God’s love for us.
LOVE
 God reaching out to us and our reaching out to others.
HOPE
 Acting out of the belief that God’s love transforms the world.
JUSTICE
 Acting out of the love for the good of all.
 TERPERANCE
 Living a balanced life through simplicity and moderation.
FORTITUDE
 living with strength and courage to do what is right in the face of   difficulty.
PRUDENCE
 Using faith, hope, love, justice, fortitude, and temperance when   making choices.

 

 

 These seven virtues that symbolize Christ living through us and our actions in the world are   brought to life each day through a variety of programs at the school. Each day begins with   prayer as a reminder that we are not alone; that we are indeed supported by a power   greater than us that guides, heals, and restores. Our weekly celebration of Mass in the   school Chapel is an opportunity for each staff and student to enter into a   mystagogical   and personal relationship with Christ, by whose example of love and commitment will   transform our lives. Major liturgical seasons, including Lent, Easter, Advent, and   Christmas   are highlighted with school wide celebrations. These experiences build a sense   of Christian community; thus all students and staff are required to participate fully. Social   action programs are an integral part of the school and students are encouraged to dedicate   some of their time to enhancing outreach programs to the disenfranchised people of our   local communities and the global world. In all aspects of the Christian life, our hope is that   we all strive to become the best version of ourselves so we may individually and   collectively transform our world.


 Our visiting Priests and Chaplaincy Leader are an integral part of our school community to   assist in this journey. They assist in the development of school liturgical celebrations,     retreats, outreach programs, religious education programs, restorative practices, and peer   ministry. The Chapel is available to students and staff for quiet prayer and reflection.

 

 We invite students, their families, and members of the greater faith community to bring their   energy, enthusiasm, and hope to the collective journey of becoming the best version of   ourselves, as God has intended for us.

 

 
“Let all that you do be done in love.”
