St. John’s Prep is an inclusive, Catholic, Xaverian Brothers Sponsored School for young men in grades 6 through 12. Founded on the Xaverian values of compassion, humility, simplicity, trust and zeal, we educate students to be, do and stand for good in the world. We enroll 1,500 students from more than 60 communities.
As the pastoral staff for St. John’s, campus ministers foster a vibrant and worshipping faith community that engages and inspires adolescent boys. The Campus Ministry team consists of the Director of Campus Ministry, as well as one campus minister for grades 6 through 8 (Middle School) and three campus ministers for grades 9 through 12 (High School).
The team is based in a dedicated Campus Ministry Center and enjoys active support from the School leadership and members of the faculty and staff. The team offers programs and initiatives in the areas of sacramental worship, retreats, social justice, service immersion programs, and provides an active ministry presence in all areas of school life. High School campus ministers also look for opportunities to collaborate with their Middle School colleague. In addition to these responsibilities, High School campus ministers are expected to teach one course in the Religious Studies Department.
