Adult Ministries

St. John XXIII offers many different ministries to try to accommodate a wide variety of interests, time constraints and abilities. In this way, everyone can be an active part of the parish and share their talents and time with others, no matter how big or small.

Since there is a potential for children to part of many of these ministries, or to be at the parish, all ministers should obtain clearances according to the Diocese Safe Environment Program.
