An Easter Message from Fr. Dean

To my very fine Parishioners,

The spring and spirit of Easter dawns upon us, and with renewed hope and growing happiness we rediscover the fundamental focus that is our Faith. For with the Triduum comes sacred time, rich readings, deep liturgy, moving music, and favourite foods and so we know what God has done for us. Consequently, I am reminded the gift it is to be Catholic, to be a member of God’s holy people, to know Christ! Here at St. John the Evangelist we renew this uniquely which shows and grows through the fine individuals and wonderful families who make this their Parish.

At this time of the year, I would like to express my great gratitude to the ever many who make the Triduum something exceptionally special for all to experience. We have our Art & Environment, our Liturgy Team, and Parish Council who give so much to ensure everything comes together for an event unparalleled. We have also those throughout the year who share on Sundays and through Sacraments, those who provide in prayer and presence, and those who give and live in their financial contributions. I observe and know of so many who contribute to the wellbeing of our Parish. To all I am so very very grateful. And, on a personal note, I would like to sincerely thank our Staff of Linda, Sophie, Rita and Bea who work as a superlative Team; they are indeed a gift to me and so a credit to us at St. John’s for their commitment, care, and joy.

As many people gather for festivity and food this Easter Sunday, I request but one more action of you all: please pray as a family before your meal and recall the reason for which you have gathered in Christ’s Life, Death, and Resurrection. The special traditions you have come to know, experience, and in which one delights shall remain so with conscious and combined efforts then instilled within our children through active religious observance. In other words, let us be proud to be Catholic joyfully showing it to neighbour and sharing it with family. We are part of Christ’s Church and we celebrate with everything we are and will become in our beautiful Faith.

A very Blessed Season of Easter to you. Alleluia, alleluia!!

Most sincerely yours in Christ,

Fr. Dean

Who are St. John’s parishioners?

Our Parish is a vibrant parish with some families having two to three generations still able to attend Mass together, whether it be during Easter Holy Week, Christmas or any other Sunday of the year! Most of our families bring their children to St. John’s to get baptized, receive their First Reconciliation, First Communion, seal their identity in our faith by receiving their Confirmation, and later in life, some get married in the Catholic Church! We are also humbled when our families bring their loved ones back for their Funerals of Christian Burial.

We are asking all who attend SJE to think about how they may help the parish financially. Just $50 per month, accumulates to $600 per year, which would help us greatly, but all donations of any size are most appreciated. Remember: there is a tax benefit to all donations, which assists you and assists us.

Another way to contribute to the health and happiness of your Parish is through a donation of time. Do you have a talent or gift that would be very useful for the Parish in the coming months? God gave them that you might share them: we hope you will.

Remember: SJE is not merely our grandparents’ or parents’ Church, it now becomes our Church as well. Your generous donation today guarantees that the Church will still be here for you, your children, and grandchildren tomorrow.

  • How many people have celebrated each of the seven Sacraments?
  • How many families are active in our parish?
  • Are they donating treasure (money) and/or time (volunteering)?
  • How many families use envelopes and/or donate through other means?
    Pre-authorized donations, e-transfer or Visa.
  • How much money is being donated for “Parish Fund” donations? 

Parish Fund donations funds pay for the everyday needs of our Church: salaries, power, gas, insurance, maintenance of our over-60-year-old building, and most importantly the celebration of Mass itself. 

St. John’s Pew Project

Does something look wrong in the first picture? These show some of the problems with our current pews – some have large cracks, others have broken kneelers, and the list goes on. We are positively sick of the splinters and slivers that we have sat on for the past sixty years. We are able to do some repairs but there is only so much we can do – that brings us to why we need you!

Help us replace these old pews with new, bold and brilliant ones! The curved contours are sure to comforting you as you come to church on Sunday. Although not completely accurate, an approximate representation is pictured just below it. The pew cap is the same material and design that we will receive in July. We’re on the edge of our seat waiting for the new pews! (and that’s not because of the cracks!)

Contact the parish office if you are able to help fund the new pews.

We appreciate anything you can give and your children will definitely thank you for contributing to the beauty of our church!

Welcome to the 2024 Together We Serve Campaign

ONE CHURCH. ONE GIFT.
Your gift to Together We Serve enables us to do so much more as One Church, than we could ever do individually. That is the POWER OF ONE!

Please give today!

Together We Serve is an annual appeal in the Catholic Archdiocese of Edmonton. It was launched in 2014 to simplify giving by combining recurring special collections in parishes and inviting Catholics to work together to serve those in need at home, in Canada, and abroad. Together We Serve shows both Catholics and those around us that we are all one Church, acting together to advance the Mission given to us by Jesus Christ.
