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

All Sundays are obligatory to participate in the celebration of the Mass
Please be reminded that any parishioner is welcome to ask that Masses be celebrated for deceased or living loved ones, Catholic or non-Catholic, or for anniversaries of important occasions. Intentions can be made for Sunday and weekday Masses, and are published in the Bulletin and read out loud in the General Intercessions of Sunday Masses. The suggested donation, set by the Bishops of Ohio, is $10.00. Such donations, of course, are not for "purchasing" the graces of God, but for the temporal support of the priest. Masses will be scheduled for specific dates on a first-come first-served basis. To schedule a Mass Intention, please contact Marian Gall during office hours at 385-2549, or place a note in the collection basket.
