Registration is the official way we join a parish
Many people think that because they attend St.
John’s they automatically belong.
At times young adults who
have moved away for years think they are still signed up
under their parent’s registration.
But membership requires
signing up, formally enrolling yourself with St.

to be included in the religious, social, and ministerial
activities of St. John’s.

Have you planned for your 2018 New Year’s Resolution yet? Come and join us in our Bible study class. Many Catholics don’t have habits of reading the Scriptures. St Jerome said: “Ignorance of Scriptures is the ignorance of Christ.” Truly, we can’t fully understand God and his mystery of Incarnation without deeply knowing what He speaks to us through the Scriptures.
So come and join us in our Introduction to the Bible class here at St. John. The class will be facilitated by Fr. Thi, Deacon Noe and other core team members. We are going to use the video program called “Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible” by Jeff Cavins, a great biblical scholar, who will walk us through key events in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
The class meets every Monday of the month from 7:00pm - 8:30pm, starting Monday, January 22nd in the music room of St. John’s school. This class lasts about three months.
Don’t hesitate, come and join us! You will become “biblical scholars” within three months. Wow!
Fr. Thi and the team (T&T)
