A ministry is a privilege to serve. It is in giving our time to God that we grow in holiness. Hence, students are encouraged to join any ministry which is directed to serving the church. A Johnian can choose from the following ministries:
- Acolytes of the Altar Ministry. They undergo spiritual formation and are especially trained to assist the priest meaningfully during the mass.
- Music Ministry. The students give praise to God through singing. They have to undergo a series of practices to enhance the liturgy with solemn music during the “youth mass” on Sundays.
- Lectors and Commentators. They read the Word of God during the mass and assist in the liturgy.
- Art Ministry. They decorate the church on special occasions.
- Worship Ministry. The members organize praise and worship activities which enable the students to pray together and reflect on God’s word.
- Outreach Ministry. They organize activities to visit and engage in friendly interaction with the people in the “puroks” of the Queen of Peace Parish
