2017 Lenten Season

We are now in the season of Lent as we journey through this period of preparation and formation toward the celebration of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday!

We encourage you to use this time to continue developing your heart into a place worthy for our Savior to dwell. That is an ongoing task, to say the least, and St. John tries to offer many programs, events, services, and resources to assist you on that journey.

Below you can find more information about some of our Lenten events. And you can download our full Lenten calendar here:
