Did you miss the Prayer & Song Retreat Concert featuring Sarah Hart and Jesse Manibusan or would you like to relive the event? Well, you're in luck because a few videos were recorded, which you can view right above. At the retreat, our very own Youth created the motions to Sarah and Jesse's "Alleluia! Love Is Alive", which they will take and teach to youth around the country! We were truly blessed to have had both amazing ministers teach, inspire, sing and have fun with our local youth.

Thank you to everyone who sponsored this event and by extension our St. John's Youth programs! We could not have done it without your help! After covering costs, our net amount was $ 8,828.57 which has been distributed between the Youth Choir and the Youth Ministry/Confirmation Program. 

Last but certainly not least, thank you, Gina DeLa Torre, Camille Herrera, Carol Mansinne-Shafer, Susan Bitner, Sue Petersen, Leticia Gutierrez, Alva Carothers, Amy Honek, Deacon Loch, the Finance Council and our Pastor, Fr. Thuong for your unwavering support in making this a spirited Youth Retreat.
