• Our Mission Statement

    "To find faith and share faith; to believe in the Spirit, and the Spirit's work in our world; to make one's life a gift to God, and to live as Jesus did."

Religious Education


Children in grades Kindergarten through 8th who do not attend the parish school should be enrolled in the parish religious education program.  The Religious Ed classes will begin August 23rd. Registration is now open for new and returning students.  You may pick up registration forms in the church vestibule or at the Parish Office.

Please remember that faith formation is an on-going process that includes three components:

~ Regular Mass attendance and participation in the sacraments

~ Religious practice at home

~ Religious Education in the parish school or RE Program

Enrollment for Confirmation and First Reconciliation/First Holy Communion at St. John’s is a two year commitment beginning in the 7th and 1st grades respectively.

Please check the Church bulletin for additional information.
