Mission Statement

St. John the Evangelist Church, A Roman Catholic parish, is a community of Christians called to bear witness to Jesus Christ and to love the Gospel of Christ in such a way that others are also attracted to living out the Gospel values. As a Christian community we are dedicated to worship God, to study the truths of the Gospel and continue the serving love of Jesus Christ to people with whom we share our daily lives. We believe the Holy Spirit has bestowed on our members the charisms needed for the renewal and building up of the Church.
