“The Church – I  repeat once again – is not a relief organization, an enterprise or an NGO, but a community of people, animated by the Holy Spirit, who have lived and are living the wonder of the encounter with Jesus Christ and want to share this experience of deep joy, the message of salvation that the Lord gave us."
Pope Francis
World Mission Sunday 2013
ADMINISTRATION: Stewards of His Love


As head of the Body, in persona Christi, the pastor offers his care and service to the members of the parish, who in turn offer him the gift of their own vocations, gifts, talents and friendship. The complementary vocations to the priesthood, religious life, marriage and the laity ensure that Christ is present in every aspect of human life in the parish boundaries and beyond.

It is with profound sadness that we must inform you of the death of Msgr. John Pennington. 

Please join the St. John the Evangelist community in prayer and remembrance for the repose of the soul of our retired pastor, Msgr. John Pennington, who passed away October 7th, 2014. 

"Lord, you gave John, your servant and priest, the privilege of a holy ministry in this world. May he rejoice forever in the glory of Your Kingdom. We ask this through Our Lord, Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen."  Obituary



Sr. Kathleen Lannak, I.H.M. +

Prayer for the Church

My sweet Lord, look with mercy upon your people and especially upon the Church, your mystical Bride. Do not let sin darken the life of your Church, your holy Bride. Moved by love and wishing to reconcile the human race to yourself, you gave us your only-begotten Son. He became our Mediator and our justice by taking on all our injustice and sin out of obedience to your will, eternal Father, just as you willed that he take on our human nature. What an immeasurably profound love!

-St. Catherine of Siena (1347-1380)
