SKD Young Adults Contact Information

We’d like to try to keep in better contact with our graduated seniors, and are very interested in reaching out to them. So we need the help of parents!  If you have a child who is away at college, trade school, or in the service or workforce, AND you’d like them to consider SKD their parish home, please let us know where they are.

About our Team…

John N. Lamperis from Joyful Hope presentations joins us as he consults on evangelization of our youth ministry, religious education and other parish programs. John is the father of 8 children ranging in age from 10 to 33 and enjoys riding motorcycles, playing the drums and parties. John and his wife Stephanie live in Batavia. John is the co-founder of Camp WOW and founder of Camp Rock which are now in their 22nd year. He provides talks and retreats in three local dioceses.

Joyful Hope is what John is about. Many of our parishioners can testify to that from his presentations during Mass. John sees JOY as one of the many results of the Sacrifice of Christ and understands how it motivates our youth into a deeper journey with Jesus and a steady participation at RE classes, Youth Group and Mass. The best way to sum up his goals and purpose here is “How do we make it more fun!” and in this way, everyone will know we are Believers.
