We pray the rosary on Tuesdays during the school year after Mass (~8:45) for the students, staff and families of St John’s Catholic Schools.  Anyone is welcome to join us at anytime by their presence or in their private prayers.  Anyone with questions or wanting us to pray for a particular intention may contact Kate Walter at (785) 738-2118 or  If you prefer to remain anonymous, there is a locker for intentions in the high school and a heart shaped box on the main floor in the hallway of the grade school.
