Youth at St. John Cantius Church

What can we do to get together and grow in virtue? These events bring us face to face with God and each other to make us awesome and help us to get to Heaven.

SECOND FRIDAY NIGHTS occurs monthly at St. John Cantius beginning at 5:30 p.m. Every single person at St. John Cantius from age 13 – 17 is invited to come play sports, pray the rosary, eat, socialize, and hear about matters of the Faith.


CRUSADERS FOR LIFE meet on the Third Friday of every month at 7:30 p.m (usually at St. John Cantius Church). Any teens interested in getting more involved in the Pro-Life movement are welcome to come listen to guest speakers, pray, plan for future events, and get to know other pro-life youth in order to be an educated and effective Pro-Life witness to the world!


SATURDAY SPORTS casually happen after choir practices on Saturday. Usually youth play from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. You don’t have to be in choir, but it helps!


LIFE TOUR is a three bus, three day road trip around January 22 to stand and shout and sing for LIFE with thousands of good people from across the country for the unborn who have no voice of their own.


THE ANNUAL WALKING PILGRIMAGE from St. John Cantius to Holy Hill, Wisconsin involves 116 miles of endurance, growth in the spiritual life and a lot of strong friendships. Ladies and Men walk separately 13 – 17 years old.


SAINT DON BOSCO CAMPSare an essential part of the summer for boys and girls from ages 8 – 12. These camps are aimed at getting youth outside, active, social, and virtuous.


Annual Choir Camp is a week-long workshop where members of the Magnificat Choir (and others interested in music) attend classes on singing, sight-reading, music theory, as well as rehearse both group pieces and solos. Usually at the beginning of August, Choir Camp is a great way to improve your singing, get to know friends, and enjoy the end of summer!
