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.

Mission of Prayer for Priests
Our parish has undertaken a mission of prayer to honor and support the men who have been chosen by Christ himself to be his priests. Parishioners will welcome a blessed chalice, paten, candle and booklet of prayers into their homes for a week. During that time, they will be asked to pray together for the intentions of our parish priests, priests around the world, and for an increase in vocations to the priesthood and the religious life. Family, group and single households are all encouraged to participate! Contact Maureen Hathway at cmhathway [at] verizon.net
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 email@example.com
