Our Mission Statement

We, the people of God gathered as Saint John the Evangelist faith community share the life-giving Word, the Eucharist and the sacraments, so that all might come to believe in the Son and have eternal life. Given this abundant life, we feel called to share our gifts and our faith with others.

Brick Patio Project Moving Forward

Saint John the Evangelist Parish sold brick paver memorials over the summers of 2018 and 2019.   Funds donated to this cause have been restricted for landscape projects, including the installation of the brick paver patio. Tree removal, sitting wall construction, and paver laying are scheduled for November 2020.

Thank you to all who supported this project. The above rendering is for reference only. If you would like to have a brick memorial added to this soon-to-be-built hardscape, please fill out and return the form at the link below to our parish office - it is not too late!
