Becoming Catholic…
Are you sitting in the pew each Sunday and intrigued by the Catholic Faith? 
Have you been coming to church with your family for years and need a safe place to ask questions?
Are you one of the many Catholics who didn’t finish their initiation sacraments and still need to receive Eucharist or be Confirmed? 

We have an opportunity for you, to journey in faith with us, as we share together the richness of the Catholic Church.  We invite you to come and learn more about Christ and what the Church teaches and spend time with some of our faithful parish members. These sessions are a place to ask the difficult questions you may have about the Catholic Church.  These gatherings are for everyone (those unbaptized, those who were baptized Christian from other denominations and Catholics in need of Eucharist and Confirmation).
Contact Jessica today to begin the process at or 651-633-1540 x1228.

Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta 
Exhibit of Love and Mercy at St. John’s
August 10  (8am - 6pm) & August 11 (8am - 3pm)

This amazing exhibit, brought to us by Blessed Teresa of Calcutta’s religious order of Sisters, the Missionaries of Charity, is over 75 full color panels of her life story, from her birth and vocation story, to her amazing life works of love and mercy devoted to the heart of Jesus and serving the sick, poor, hungry, lonely, and vulnerable.  Come and explore this woman of God’s life and ministry in order to grow in love, experience God’s mercy in your life, and ask her intercession for your prayer intentions.  The exhibit is in both English and Spanish, in both text and images, and is appropriate for all ages.   Thank you to the Council of Catholic Women for sponsoring this event.
