Welcome to Saint John Vianney Parish

A Message from Father Tom Johns

Welcome to Saint John Vianney Parish! On behalf of the parish staff and your fellow parishioners, we are happy you are joining our very special community.

We are a vibrant Catholic Community steeped in the mercy of God, a theme that is apparent from the moment you step into our community. From the welcoming greeting to the décor reflecting God’s mercy, we want to extend God’s mercy to all.

We are on a Christ-centered journey, a journey led by the Holy Spirit and nurtured by the Eucharist. We proclaim and live the gospel message of love of God and love of neighbor and look forward to your presence when we gather. We invite you to join us in our daily attempts to fulfill the mission entrusted to us by the Lord.

In a parish as large as this one, it can be easy to become “lost in the crowd.” We can help you find just the right ministry or activity for you so you can share your talents for and on behalf of others. You are an important and needed member of this community. We have many parish ministries, organizations, and activities; you can find most of them here on our website. Feel free to contact the leader directly or to contact our Director of Volunteers, Maureen Kraizel. For ministry programs, you also may want to contact one of the members of the pastoral staff. The talents and time you want to share with others as a gift to God are welcome here.

God bless you and be assured of our prayers for you and your family. Welcome home – your parish family celebrates you!

Sincerely Yours,

Father Tom Johns

“We are a vibrant Catholic Community on a Christ-centered journey. Led by the Holy Spirit and nurtured by the Eucharist, we proclaim and live the gospel message of love of God and love of neighbor.”

We want our parish to be more than a “Sunday place.” We encourage our members to strive for perfection in the daily practice of the Christian faith by loving God and neighbor. I hope that you find the parish to be a place where you can do these things.
