“While the situation is not good and the planet is suffering, the window of opportunity is still open. Despite everything. Let us not let it close. Let us open it with our determination to cultivate integral human development, to ensure a better life for future generations.”
The time to take action is NOW. The United States must lead on climate action and the US Senate must ensure that we participate in international agreements which seek to prevent the impacts from climate change from doing irreparable harm to our common home and our shared future.
During this Season of Creation, and in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, whose Feast Day we celebrate on October 4th, we urge you to sign the Senate Petition for International Climate Action.
Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else’s skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too. Our Compassionate Services Ministry is the most delicate of all our ministries at St. John XXIII. True compassion lives in you… really.
Outreach is important to our church because it is important to God and that makes it important to every Christian for the following reason. Outreach was commanded by Christ. Before His ascension, Jesus told the disciples that their impact on the world should start in their city and expand its influence into the entire world.
The Mass is the Lord’s Supper. The Mass is the celebration of the paschal mystery of Jesus Christ. Christ instituted the Eucharist in the cenacle on Holy Thursday, in the framework of the Jewish Passover, to leave to all Christians the new Passover with its saving presence until the end of time. Celebrate what we believe.

We like to measure the metrics that matter.
The practice of Stewardship of Time, Talent and Treasure is a grateful response to our deep heartfelt desire to give something back to God in thanksgiving for all we have received, including the gift of life itself.
We encourage you to read through the Ministry section of our site for different opportunities in which to spend your most precious resource. God has given you many talents, and only a certain amount of time – use them in His name!
As we celebrate our 12th year as a parish, we give thanks to God for His grace and abundant blessings. Since our earliest days, we gratefully acknowledge our past and our present by building for our future.
