Welcome to St. John
the Evangelist Catholic Church

Due to the generosity of our parishioners, St. John the Evangelist has collected over $110,000 as part of the Annual Catholic Appeal. Because we have exceeded our 2015 goal, these sums will not only benefit the Archdiocese of Chicago, but our parish as well.  

Thank you to all of our parishioners who have  prayfully donated to the Appeal.  It is because of you, that we can continue to grow and flourish as a Catholic Christian Community.  God Bless you for all that you do.


Baby Bottle Project for Respect Life Month

As part of Respect Life month this October, the parish of St. John the Evangelist will be participating in the Baby Bottle Project benefitting The Women's Centers of Greater Chicagoland.  

This non-profit organization directly assists mothers and families experiencing crisis pregnancies by offering emotional, financial, material and spiritual support.  By God's grace, The Women's Centes have saved more than 36,000 baies and their mothers from the tragedy of abortion since its opening in 1984.  

Please take home a baby bottle with you on the weekend of Oct. 24-25th, fill it with spare change and return it on the weekend of Nove. 14th-15th.  (Please make sure you return the baby bottles along with any money collected as they cost almost $1 each and are recycled afterwards.)
