WELCOME TO THE CHURCH OF ST. JOHN THE EVANGELIST

Our Parish Community

Welcome to The Church of St. John the Evangelist, Rochester’s oldest Catholic Church. We are vibrant and alive with more than 1,200 households calling our parish home. We also serve as home away from home for thousands of visitors of every faith each year.

For the greater community, as well as for our parishioners, St. John the Evangelist serves as a spiritual, educational and cultural center. Our parish regularly hosts concert series featuring national, regional and local artists and groups. The parish holds numerous educational seminars and workshops with noted global educators, authors and speakers.

Serving the needs of all who come to our door in the form of community outreach is one of our missions. Recognizing Christ is at the heart of service- parish groups and individuals support and volunteer in a number of organizations, including: Interfaith Hospitality Network, Dorothy Day Center, Ronald McDonald House, Channel One Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, Hope Lodge and the Mayo Clinic.

We come to share our story and together we form the community of St. John the Evangelist. Our journey is together as we share the stories of our lives—working, learning, playing and praying. We share our stories to open ourselves to others, to welcome each other into our lives and to grow in faith.

safe environment program

The mission of the Diocese of Winona's "Safe Environment Program" is to ensure the safety of children and young people who have been entrusted to our care in our parishes, schools, religious education classes, and other programs.

We pursue this mission in three ways:

  • By thoroughly screening and supervising all members of the clergy (priests and deacons), as well as all employees and volunteers who work with children and young people as part of their ministry.
  • By providing appropriate training in recognizing and reporting child abuse to appropriate civil and Church authorities.
  • By holding all members of the clergy, employees and volunteers who work with children and young people to Christ-centered and professional codes of conduct.
