2017 THEME: “SO AMAZING!”

SCRIPTURE:
This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.
–John 3:16, The Message (MSG)

MISSION STATEMENT: It is the mission of St. John to be a beacon of faith and transforming presence in the lives of individuals in the community we serve and in the wider world around us.
