"We, the people of St. John of God Parish, strive to be a community of Faith, Hope and Love. By recognizing our Baptismal call, we are committed to follow in faith the teaching of Jesus Christ, by uniting our community through Evangelization, Education, Service and Worship."




                                           MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS. ..I AM
                                           WITH YOU UNTIL THE END OF TIMES

The message of Jesus is ever true, ever fresh and ever relevant. He continually calls us to be bearers of the Good News. He calls us to celebrate our Faith, live our Faith and share our Faith. All these point to an important and essential element of our being Christians and that is, our being missionaries. By virtue of our being baptized, we are missionaries. To be a missionary means to come to Jesus and to go with Jesus. These are the two actions of being a missionary. Coming to Jesus and going with Jesus. To come to Jesus means to learn from him, to sit at his feet, to kneel before him and adore His holy presence. To go with Jesus means to share our faith wherever he leads us, to speak about our faith, to teach our faith. Simply put, to mirror and reflect Jesus to others. In light of this, if our Parish Community is to be faithful to this calling, we must continue to be responsive to the ever changing needs of the times and continue to create programs that COME TO JESUS & GO WITH JESUS. Presently, all of our programs in the parish and the many organizations and Ministries are doing these already. However, there are still so much to be done to bring God’s Word to all. These are some of the practical programs that we will be implementing.
