The Church of St. Mary, followers of Christ, are inspired by our Catholic Faith to build on our traditions through the Eucharist, Prayer, and Education,  As the family of God, and with one Another, we desire to live our faith in the world.

The mission of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church is toprovide a place of Catholic worship, sacraments, spiritual guidance,education, love and support for all ages throughout our parish and community.

We are truly in a “spiritual desert” this Lent and miss our faith community and the presence of Jesus in the actual Eucharist but in lieu of that here is a prayer to say for the "Spiritual Communion of the Blessed Sacrament"
