    SJSC Novena Prayer

    We would like you to join us in a novena to prepare for the summer conference beginning 9 days before and ending on the eve of the conference. Simply say this prayer every day, and consider adding a Rosary or a sacrifice, or another form of prayer to accompany it.


    “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and JUST and will
    FORGIVE us our sins and purify us from all
    unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9

    With these words of St. John as our initial and guiding light, we invite you to search with us at the Saint John Summer Conference this year. Through a 4 day journey into the spirit and life of the Community of Saint John, plunge yourself into a life greater than your own and meet other young adults who share your interest in the faith. Let’s seek the Truth together as we remember Christ’s passion, death, and resurrection through beautiful liturgies, bold witnesses, and inspiring community.

    Come to the Saint John Summer Conference!

    Where Justice and Mercy Meet

    Invite your friends!




    As a part of the Saint John Summer Conference, the Community of St. John will be hosting Family Stations of the Cross through the streets of downtown Peoria on Friday of the Summer Conference, at 7pm. We will meet in the back of the Spalding Center (2 blocks from the Cathedral) to begin our prayerful journey. We celebrate the Stations of the Cross to witness to Christ’s Passion and to help us enter into the mystery of The Cross. Come join us with the whole family! Shuttles will be available for drivers who park at the Spalding Center, and crossing guards will assist throughout.
