St. John’s takes seriously Christ’s commission to “preach the gospel to all nations…” Our desire is not to proselytize people of other faiths, but rather to reach out to all Catholic students at ISU as well as any other students who do not have a Church home but may find one here at St. John’s.
• St. John’s regularly hosts information tables in high-traffic areas on campus to raise awareness about our ministry and speak to students, faculty, and staff about our services.
• The Campus Minister is a visible presence on campus and attends student activities regularly to speak with students about St. John’s.
• The student leaders coordinate outreach through fliers and information tables in the Student Union Building.
• St. John’s partners with local parishes to raise awareness about opportunities and activities at St. John’s through parish bulletins, Mass announcements, and newsletters.
• St. John’s strives to partner with parish youth ministers to reach out to new I.S.U. students each year in order to invite them to St. John’s.
• St. John’s hosts visits from parish youth groups to raise awareness about the opportunities at St. John’s should any of the teens decide to attend I.S.U.
• St. John’s strives to stay aware of the current needs and interests of the students, and works to provide classes, trips, retreats and activities that reflect these needs and interests.
• St. John’s provides information to students about vocations, especially vocations to the Priesthood and religious life.
We are excited to have FOCUS missionaries joining us this year
