Summer Encounter, 6/1-7/10


We will be starting a summer encounter starting June 1st based on Matthew Kelly's book, "Rediscover Jesus." Do you feel like Jesus has gone or is missing from your life? Without mass or the sacraments the last two months, some of us can begin to feel a spiritual dryness or emptiness. Rediscover Jesus and join us in this 40-day spiritual journey of encounter as we begin anew in reaching out to God who has never left us.

Participation in this encounter requires a Facebook account and membership in the SJV Youth Ministry Facebook group. To be added or for additional information, e-mail Samantha at

Common Prayer Time @ SJV

The SJV Youth Ministry has designated Thursdays from 5-6 pm as our Common Prayer Time at St. John Vianney Parish. During private prayer in the church, all youth of SJV are encouraged to spend any amount of time in this hour to stop by the church and pray before the tabernacle. This provides the opportunity for us to be physically present with Jesus Christ and to see each other in person while maintaining social distancing practices.

Pray the rosary, our solidarity prayer, an Our Father, or just come in to say hi to Jesus. Come as you are and be in the presence of Our Lord in a time when He can feel so far away.
