St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church
We are a Eucharistic Community called together to celebrate our Catholic faith. As a welcoming community of God, our mission is to provide an environment that  enriches our spiritual, personal and social growth through prayer, education, outreach and fellowship.              
                                                                                                                                                
- Joint Parish Mission Statement (November 2010)

Parish Office:  588-2028

 Stewardship is a Christian way of life in which we share our time, talent and treasure-the gifts we have been given by our God.  It is through our worship together and our prayers as a parish family that we are given the strength and direction we need to become better stewards of God's gifts.
