Liturgy Team - A Liturgy Team is not usually a group that many schools have, but St. John's has made it a point to involve the students in almost every aspect of school life.

They help the church out a lot by finding people to read, sing, and greet. The Liturgy Team also organizes events to raise money and help out the school and community.
Mission Society - St. Johns Mission Society is composed of St. John's students who wish to spend time volunteering for activities which will benefit the community and school. They organize fund raisers in school and many times allow the students to have "jean days" by paying a dollar or fifty cents to the missions. They sponsor "Fat Tuesday" each year just before Lent. Their most looked forward to activity is coming up soon. The members will take a trip to Appalachia, to help build a house for those who don't have much money. This event comes around annually, and it always seems to leave unforgettable memories for all the members.
