How will we grow spiritually?

Phase III - Gratitude...Renewed

Phase III

Our Church, Saint John the Apostle, has been blessed with 50 years of serving God in the Northeast Lincoln area. Gratitude... Renewed is the theme with which we shape our future as we complete Phase III of our building program. This campaign will provide for the much needed office and meeting space, the new rectory, as well as providing for a stable financial situation for our Church and School into the future

Wedding Information


Getting started:

First the wedding couple needs to contact the wedding coordinator, Eileen Perkins, to check for date availability. Either the bride or groom needs to be a member of St. John's parish. Then the couple needs to get permission from the parish pastor to be married at St. John's. Once the pastor has granted permission, the wedding couple and the wedding coordinator can meet to go over the "Guidelines for Weddings at St. John's." This takes about one hour and the meeting is at St. John's Church.
