“The spiritual children which the Lord gives each priest, the children he has baptized, the families he has blessed and helped on their way, the sick he has comforted, the young people he catechizes and helps to grow, the poor he assists… all these are the 'Bride' whom he rejoices to treat as his supreme and only love and to whom he is constantly faithful. It is the living Church, with a first name and a last name, which the priest shepherds in his parish or in the mission entrusted to him.”
Pope Francis
Chrism Mass, April 2014

His Priests

Our priests are, first and foremost, priests of Jesus Christ, signed with a special character at ordination so they can offer his divine life and love to the parishioners of St. John’s.

Seminarian Nick Redmond

St. John the Evangelist would like to extend a warm welcome home to our seminarian, Nick Redmond! Nick is the son of parishioner Dr. Dan Redmond and his late wife, Suzanne. He grew up in St. John the Evangelist parish, went to the parish school, played CYO sports and was a member of Boy Scout Troop 466. Nick attended Gonzaga College High School and then moved to Charlottesville, VA, in 1996 to attend the University of Virginia. There, after teaching high school Spanish for ten years, he discerned a call to the priesthood which placed him in the Diocese of Richmond.

As part of his formation, Nick now attends the Theological College of The Catholic University of America and is in First Theology, which includes a Catechetical placement in a local parish. He has chosen St. John the Evangelist and will be teaching 6th grade CCD and helping out with the Confirmation program for us this year! Additionally, he will serve at one of our Saturday evening or Sunday masses each week.

We are so excited to welcome back this son of St. John's!  If you would like to contact Nick via email, please contact sjeworshiplead@gmail.com

Prayer for priests

O holy Mother of God, pray for the priests your Son has chosen to serve the Church. Help them, by your intercession, to be holy, zealous and chaste. Make them models of virtue in the service of God's people. Help them be pious in meditation, efficacious in preaching and zealous in the daily offering of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Help them administer the Sacraments with joy. Amen.

-St. Charles Borromeo (1538-1584)
