We are a fellowship of believers coming together to declare the glory of the Lord and celebrate Jesus, King of the Universe.
Our prayer is that you would be blessed and strengthened by the power of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist and that you will live a life of abundance in faith, hope, and charity. St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church is here for you. We are a fellowship of believers coming together to declare the glory of the Lord and celebrate Jesus, King of the Universe. We study God’s Word, practice what we learn, and in the process grow together in holiness. May God richly bless you!
