The Respect Life Committee Respect Life means we recognize that human life is a gift of God entrusted to everyone and so we feel the necessity of expressing our shared conviction about its sacred character in concrete and active ways.

Here at St. John's we will be active in doing fundraising for various organizations that promote the sacredness of life and have various speakers come from time to time in an effort to educate our parishioners.

The Works of Mercy Team mission is to help our community by promoting awareness of the Church’s social teachings, informing parishioners on specific issues, and sponsoring several events that raise money and food donations for various local charities and families in need.
The Worship and Spirituality Committee exists to enhance the worship and prayer life of the parish by planning liturgical seasons and celebrations, educating parishioners on liturgy, and encouraging community prayer beyond Sunday services.
