Welcome from the Pastor

Father EdThank you for visiting our website! The St. John Vianney parish mission statement says we are a “…welcoming Catholic Faith community.” Our society is so impersonal these days that community can be lost. How nice it is to come to a faith nurturing parish that is warm, friendly, affirming and pulsing with life. I have experienced this at St. John Vianney parish; I pray you experience it, too.

Our mission statement says that we are “experiencing Christ in our lives through the Gospel, Sacraments, and lifelong faith formation.” When we live the Good News of the Gospel, as well as all of scripture, and celebrate the sacraments with depth and meaning we then grow as intentional disciples of Jesus Christ. As disciples of our Lord, we are grateful for all God’s blessings and graces. This is the heart of stewardship which is the third article of our mission statement. We give thanks to God through our time, talents and treasure.

Lastly, we, as a faith community, are “…serving God’s people to reveal the presence of Christ in our community.” We serve other’s needs because we realize the importance of faith in action.

There are over 7,000 registered parishioners at St. John Vianney’s and many more people who are affiliated with us in some way. I pray you will feel the spirit of Christ here. Our pastoral staff, support staff, active members, and I all look forward to meeting you personally as that opportunity presents itself.
