About Us

All of our programs are open to any junior high school student. There is no requirement that participants be Catholic, or 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.

Middle School Youth Group

Middle School Youth Group is a weekly discipleship-based program for student in grades 6-8. Meetings follow a semester-long theme and include experiential learning activities that help our students make the faith their own! This is a great supplement to our Religious Education Program for middle school students, as well as a great way for young people who have not been raised in the Church to become familiar with the Faith! MSYG meets every Sunday from 4:30-6:00pm.

Catholic Youth Trek

St. John Neumann is proud to participate in the Catholic Youth Trek– a co-op of middle school ministries in the Northwest and Western Wayne vicariates. Our partnership with this ministry allows us to offer numerous events including: Three Cedars Farm Trip, Advent Service Blitz, Las Posadas, Kids Against Hunger, Walk for Water, Wash for Life, and more! Permission slips for these events are posted to the website as they become available!


Please consider joining our mailing list! There are separate lists for parents and middle school students.
