Invite your family and friends to this unique, blessed event at the Cathedral.  The icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa, the "Black Madonna", will be making a stop at St. John's on Monday, March 3.  This Ocean to Ocean Pilgrimage in Defense of Life has expanded the globe, traveling over 40,000 miles and into 24 countries. The faithful will unite in prayer in the defense of the most vulnerable, to ask her intercession for the protection of the family, and the sanctity of all human life from conception to natural death.

Simple Meatless Meals 

Our Simple Meatless Meals will follow Stations of the Cross each Friday during Lent.  Please come and show your support and thank the organizations that have agreed to help with preparing and serving the meals for you.  A cash donation or a canned good will be welcomed and given to our
St. Vincent de Paul Society. 

As Lent approaches, our parish is preparing for Living the Eucharist. This Lenten spiritual renewal program provides us with opportunities to grow in our faith through learning more about the Eucharist. Click here to learn more about this program. 

Mark your calendars! 

Visiting priest, Rev. David Delich, O.P. will be at the Cathedral the weekend of March 22-23 offering a Lenten Reflection entitled
"God's Love".  His reflection will be offered after the Saturday and Sunday evening Masses.  Enrich your Lenten season and make plans to attend one of the days.  The talk will be the same both nights. 

Please join us for informal sessions and an update of the Catholic faith. The sessions are conducted in a support-group format. Everyone is welcome, no matter where you have been. Sessions are the next 5 Wednesday's starting at 6:30 pm in the Parish Hall. Learn more
