Faith formation is more than learning from a book; it is learning to live the faith each day. St. John the Baptist Catholic School is guided by the parish pastor and The Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Schools. Our first-rate faculty instills confidence in parents that their investment in Catholic education will support their child’s complete development and personal success.
Religious Curriculum & Faith Development
At St. John the Baptist Catholic School, we strive to emulate a Christ-centered community that weaves the teachings of the Church within the school day and year. Along with daily religion classes, the students attend school Mass celebrated weekly on Tuesday and Thursday, for feast days and holy days, and classes participate in weekly Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Confessions are offered during Advent and Lent for the school, which provides a solid basis for students to receive the sacraments.
Regular routines include morning and afternoon school prayer and recitation of the rosary at least once a month.
Other Catholic traditions celebrated throughout the year include the Feast of St. John the Baptist, All Saints Day, St. Nicholas’ Feast Day, Our Lady of Guadalupe, St. Lucy’s Feast Day, Stations of the Cross during Lent and many others.
Service becomes an embedded part of life at St. John the Baptist Catholic School with activities such as food collection for the St. John’s Food Bank, Mullen Home collection drive, the Jesse Tree Program, HOPE lunches, Elderly Outreach Program, Popsicles for the Chiri Home, Law Enforcement Appreciation Month, and items for the Gabriel House.
