Adopt a Highway
Adopt a Highway is a shared ministry here at St. John’s. On highway 55 between Boise and Cascade/McCall, at milepost 54 there is an Adopt a Highway sign with our parish name on it. As a parish community we’ve committed to four times a year, cleaning the roadside between mile 54 and 56. This is a community service that we provide.
This group of volunteers assists the parish staff by visiting shut-ins with Sunday Eucharist. Time commitment is aobut one hour a month. This is a very rewarding activity—both for volunteers and recipients.
St. John’s Social Justice Committee (SJSJ) advocates for Catholic social justice issues, particularly those affecting the poor and vulnerable. SJSJ also serves as our parish Respect Life Committee under guidance of the Holy Spirit and the National Conference of Catholic Bishops. Prayer and Education on Catholic social justice and pro-life issues are two other important areas of their ministry.
The mission of Corpus Christi House is to offer hospitality and services to those in need in the city of Boise.
This ministry provides a meal to the homeless or underserved in our community the first Thursday of each month in the Parish Hall. Parishioners are encouraged to participate through food donations, serving, set-up and clean-up.
