OREGON CITY — The St. John the Apostle class of 2022 graduates June 14. The eighth-graders stepped up in a time of craziness to become leaders for the school.

They created service projects, fundraisers and activities that helped build community. They were examples of how to live faith by leading Mass ministries, morning prayer, dramatized Stations of the Cross and the crowning of Mary.

“The school community wishes them all the best as they move on to high school,” said a statement from the school.
