St. John's has canceled Mass and all group gatherings until further notice. Adoration and Faith Formation will also be suspended at this time. 

Fr. Remi will make a video recording of the weekend’s homily for every week that Mass is canceled. These videos will come out on each Friday and will be posted to our website and to Facebook.
