St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church is made known and available to the Lawrence community in a number of ways.  In a limited way the parish does that through articles, notices and advertisements in various media to promote special events and to make known regular church services.  In a much broader outreach we, the 3000 plus parishioners in over 1200 households, share the good news by personally and individually inviting those who are unchurched or those away from the Catholic faith to look at our Catholic way of life at St. John Parish.


Always Our Children is a new ministry to welcome all to be a part of our community regardless of their sexual orientation.
