Parish Mission Statement

The Church of Saint John is the faith anchor of our diversified, multicultural community.  We are welcoming, supportive, and reconciling, encouraging all to put forth their gifts and talents. Our parish comes together with this wealth for the purpose of spreading the Word and fulfilling our Church mission — to witness the love and salvation of Jesus Christ encouraging oneness, ownership, and understanding.
As Catholic Christians, we are given the strength to evangelize and teach through the sacraments, especially the Holy Eucharist. We promote strong ministries that enrich parish life through prayer, worship, education, family life, community, and charitable outreach. In doing so, we reflect the joy of the Risen Christ who dwells in each of us.

St. John, Apostle and Evangelist


Feast day - December 27th

St. John, the son of Zebedee, and the brother of St. James the Greater, was called to be an Apostle by our Lord in the first year of His public ministry. He became the "beloved disciple" and the only one of the Twelve who did not forsake the Savior in the hour of His Passion. He stood faithfully at the cross when the Savior made him the guardian of His Mother.
