Welcome to the St. John the Evangelist Church family and to our Website. Here you will find information about parish ministries, groups, activities, and organizations. You may wish to participate in one or many of the groups. Contact the leader directly or call or send an e-mail to the parish office, and we will put you in touch with the appropriate person. We hope that this Web site will strengthen the already vibrant St. John Community and lead to new friendships and closer associations.
Yours in Christ
