About Us

All of our programs are open to any high school student. There is no requirement that participants be Catholic, or even a member of St. John Neumann Parish. Some events require permission slips (indicated on the calendar above) but most don’t even require pre-registration. Parents are invited to contact Chris, the youth minister, at any time with questions: (734) 635-7258 or cleach@sjncanton.org.

High School Youth Group

HSYG meets on Wednesdays from 7-9pm. Meetings are open to all young people in grades 9-12 regardless of whether or not they are members of SJN or are Catholic. We welcome all young people! HSYG meetings are facilitated by our teen leadership team and cover a variety of topics and issues. We encourage teens to take the “3 Meeting Challenge” and give HSYG a try for 3 meetings as that is the best way to get a feeling for the diversity of activities that take place for high school students!

The Before Party

The Before Party is a loosely-structured time for teens to come, relax after school, briefly pray together, and share a meal before youth group starts. Teens can drop-in to the youth center anytime between 2:30-4:30pm to work on homework, talk with friends, play games, etc. At 4:30pm we will gather quickly for prayer and then share a meal together. All attendees must arrive by 4:30pm (or just come at 7:00pm for youth group!). (Flyer)

Disciple Groups

Disciple Groups are short-term, small groups where teens explore different topics and issues related to their Christian faith! These groups may meet at various times and places but require a short-term commitment. Within the small group teens and mentors build relationships that aid them in exploring the faith. Check out our list of Fall Offerings here!
