"Dead to the World; Alive in Christ!"

The Dead Theologians Society is a Catholic apostolate for teens. The Dead Theologians Society encourages teens to answer the Call to Holiness  through the study of the theology and lives of the great saints of the Church - to strive to become all that God calls them to be - with the goal of becoming saints.    The motto of the Dead Theologian Society is: “Dead to the World; Alive in Christ!”

Meetings are Monday evenings from 6:30pm to 7:30pm in the Neumann House

5 PM Sunday Youth Mass:

SJN offers several different mass times for families to attend. One option is our newest mass time! This is a billingual (English/ Spanish) mass with teens serving in the various liturgical ministries: as ushers, lectors, altar servers, and in the youth band. We have whole families that find different ways to serve. We are always looking for more volunteers to get involved!

High School Youth Group:

Join us Sunday evenings from 6:30-8:30 PM (following the 5pm mass) in the Parish Center (located at the main church building) October - February and at the Neumann House March-June (9001 Warfeild Rd). ALL High schoolers from any school or schooling type are welcome and we love to see new people! At our weekly meetings, we have dinner, time to pray, learn, discuss, hang out, and play games! Discussion is done in small groups, where teens have a chance to share with one another their struggles and triumphs in their faith life, while being guided by adult and teen leaders.  We also have monthly adoration, opportunities for service, retreats, and fun off-site events.  Check out our calendar to keep up with everything that's happening!


Throughout the year you can look forward to Prom Kickball, bonfire & hayride, Back from the Dead Cemetery Walk, Mass & March for Life in DC, Mount 2000 Retreat, Encounter service work camp, Fall retreats, vocational opportunities, JESUS SUMMER CAMP, and much more!

Middle School Youth Group:

Mrs. Marisa Stoolmiller leads our youth group for middle schoolers (6th-8th graders)! The group meets weekly at the SAME TIME as the High School (Sundays 6:30-8:30pm) making it easy for parents to drop off their teens.  Middle School meets at the Neumann House Oct-Feb and at the Parish Center March-June.  This youth group is designed to reinforce catechesis at home, school, and Religious Ed, with dinner,  games and snacks to add some fun!  Like the high school version, middle schoolers have the opportunity to build friendships within the Catholic community, talk about relevant issues facing them, learn more about church teaching, have discussions, play games, and more!  Throughout the year there will be a couple social events, exposure to religious brothers & sisters and seminarians, and service opportunities.  Check out our calendar to keep up with what's happening and join the email list!  Contact for more information
