The E.Y.C. is the youth group at Saint Johns. It is made up of students in Jr. and Sr. High School. The group meets primarily on Sunday evenings 6-8pm during the academic year. The meetings begin with a parishioner provided meal, and then there are tons of games and activities and projects. The group’s time ends with either a service of prayer or spiritual reflection. The EYC has several special activities during the year and has a major end of the year mission trip that the group works towards formationally and also raises money for the trip. At the end of the 2009-2010 year, the EYC traveled to Chicago to provide a Vacation Bible School for inner city children. This year, the group is making plans to travel to the Ozark Mountains to minister to impoverished children. Next year, the group is planning to make a spiritual pilgrimage to one of the ancient and important sites of the beginning of the Christian Church.
The E.Y.C. is led by Mrs. Catharine Reich and Mr. Rick Burson. For more information contact the parish office.
