We are St. John
Transition is in the air ... change ... movement ... progress.
As we prepare to relocate to a new church building at a new address--sometime in 2018, (actually now it looks more like 2020--Bishop Knestout signed our building contract on 27 September 2018) our Pastoral Leaders along with our Pastor (Parish Staff, Parish Pastoral Council, Finance Council) have been taking time to clarify a vision and mission for our community. We are not a random collection of individuals who happen to live in the Shenandoah Valley and happen to be Catholic. We want to live our baptismal commitment to the full. We want to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We want to serve God's holy people. But we also want to make sure our efforts are not haphazard. With the assistance of professionals and materials provided by Renew International, we are embarking on an in-depth renewal of the faith and life of our people.
Welcome to a new beginning.
Stay tuned. Wonderful things are afoot.
