Viking Fathers' Club

Viking Fathers' Club


A brand new way for SJCP Fathers to connect to build community. Support Saint John's Catholic Prep and our students by helping out with athletic events, annual soiree and more!

Mission Statement

The Fathers Club was formed to foster fellowship among the fathers and guardians of SJCP students and to support the school’s mission through volunteerism and social activities. Just as the SJCP student is invited to become part of the Viking community for a lifetime, so too are their families. It is always a good time (and never too late) to get involved in supporting both the activities and the individuals that make our students’ experience in Buckeystown enriching and fulfilling. 

Whether it is selling tickets for football games, participating in the Clustered Spire Classic events (soccer/lacrosse), attending basketball tournaments/games, or any number of other events the Fathers Club hosts or supports with the Viking Parent Organization (VPO), I encourage you to get involved. The Fathers Club also hosts monthly meetings and gatherings during the year, during which we socialize and hear valuable insights from invited teachers, coaches, and administrators. Occasionally, we also hear from guest speakers on topics of interest to the community. We hope to have a calendar of dates and events out soon.

Throughout the school year, we will be reaching out to share updates on Fathers Club activities and enlist your support as supporters of SJCP by volunteering for various Fathers Club and VPO events. I look forward to seeing you all out supporting our students this year!  If you would like to join or be included in the email lists, please email The Fathers Club President, Drake Russell.
