SALVATION IS IN JESUS CHRIST AND HAPPINESS IS FOUND IN HIM!

We invite you to join the St. John Parish family to worship him and to follow him in discipleship!

The St. John’s parish family strives to be welcoming and hospitable. We share frequent dinners, parish work days and celebrate Baptisms and weddings. We console those mourning the loss of a loved one and aid those who experience tragedy or disaster. We visit those suffering illness or are limited to their home. In short, we put our gifts at the service of one another.

Parish Life

Worship

"We exist to praise God's Glory.” (Eph 1:12)

The St. John’s parish family worships the living God at our weekend celebrations and daily Masses. Many parishioners find much fruit in being actively involved in various ministries at Mass.

Adoration and Scripture

The St. John’s parish family has a vibrant life of Eucharistic adoration for adults, teens and children. Through church visits and exposition we adore our Lord in private prayer and scriptural meditation.

Faith Formation

"As lifelong disciples we seek to “know Christ...and him crucified.” (1 Cor 2:2)

The St. John’s parish family fosters this knowledge by providing faith formation opportunities for all ages.

Toddlers

We have specialized programs for hands-on learning starting at three years old.

Youth

At St. John’s we have Sunday school and hands-on programs for kindergarten through fifth grade.

Teens

Wednesday nights are religious education for middle and high-school students. We provide trips, retreats, summer camps and youth gatherings to inspire their life in the Holy Spirit.  

College and Young Adult

We have an active outreach to our college and young adult members to connect them to parish life and encourage them to live their faith on the college campus.

Adults

Through the generosity of teachers and professors we have a very active program of adult formation on Wednesdays and Sundays.

Retired Adults

St. John’s also offers an outreach to the retired or elderly through social and spiritual gatherings.

Safety & Accessability Parish Campus Improvements

 

Dear Parish Family,

In his most recent Encyclical Pope Francis stated, “If the parish proves capable of self-renewal and constant adaptivity, it [will] continue to be “the Church living in the midst of the homes of her sons and daughters” (Evangelii Gaudium, 27).  This statement challenges us to continue to “renew” and “adapt” ourselves to meet the needs of the people we are called to serve.  We are responsible for inviting all to the Banquet Feast of the Mass and to provide a hospitable environment for all who come.

We are developing a new plan for improvements for the hospitality, safety and accessibility of our parish campus.   This plan will benefit a broad spectrum of our parish family, from young families with small children  to seniors and others with restricted mobility as well as fire safety systems in the classrooms. 

We are called to share the Gospel to all, from young to old and to all with special needs.  Please pray for the success of this project so that our physical campus can support our hospitality.

Sincerely in Christ,

Rev. C. Jarrod Lies, Pastor
