We would like to take the opportunity during this Christmas season to once again say thank you very much for all of your support with our ministry! We are so very grateful for your love, support, prayers, and participation in our events and fundraising opportunities. You are making a difference in the lives of so many here at Saint John the Evangelist Parish and we are honored to be members of such a wonderful faith community. We ask for your prayers in a special way as we embark on this new year and continue to engage in service to the Gospel. This Year of Mercy has already been providing us with a beautiful spirit of service and openness to God’s will and we see that not only continuing, but growing as the year goes on. We are praying for you and we are truly hum- bled to walk along on this faith journey with you closer to Christ. Thank you again and have a fabulous week!
