Mission: The Saint John the Evangelist Church, belonging to the Archdiocese of San Francisco, is a community of faith in the One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic Church, who strive to follow Jesus Christ closely by living His teachings and by giving our obedience of faith to His Vicar on earth, the Roman Pontiff. Hence, we intend and commit ourselves to live our faith, hope, and love of God as a parish, through: * Supporting the charisms and talents that God has given to individuals and groups for the building up of His Mystical Body in our parish * Teaching the gospel values to the youth and the children who are the future of the Church * Journeying together in holiness of life by sanctifying our thoughts, words, and actions * Organizing ourselves so that we can reach out to the least, the lost, and the lonely of our parish and beyond * Having devotion and reverence in celebrating the sacred liturgies and sacraments * Nurturing the community spirit in the midst of the diversity of our ethic origins as the Lord Himself prayed in the gospel of St. John: “That all may be one, Father, as you and I are one… (Jn 17:21).” Through the intercession of St. John the Evangelist, our Patron, may God bless our resolve to live by our mission, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

[02/28/12] Lent is essentially an act of prayer spread out over 40 days. As we pray, we go on a journey, one that hopefully brings us closer to Christ and leaves us changed by the encounter with him.
Join us in prayer for our brothers and sisters at St. Anne's Church in Union City. Their Church was vandalized last night.
ABSTINENCE: Everyone fourteen years of age and older is bound to abstain from meat on ASH WEDNESDAY, the FRIDAYS of Lent and GOOD FRIDAY.
DAYS FOR FASTING: Everyone eighteen years of age and older but under the age of sixty is also bound to fast on ASH WEDNESDAY and GOOD FRIDAY.
Ash Wednesday Masses (Today):
9:00 am, 5:30 pm and 7:00 pm (Spanish). Ashes are distributed during the Mass, following the Gospel.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Season of Lent. It is a season of penance, reflection, and fasting which prepares us for Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday, through which we attain redemption.
Why we receive the ashes?
Following the example of the Nine vites, who did penance in sackcloth and ashes, our foreheads are marked with ashes to humble our hearts and reminds us that life passes away on Earth. We remember this when we are told "Remember, Man is dust, and unto dust you shall return."
Ashes are a symbol of penance made sacramental by the blessing of the Church, and they help us develop a spirit of humility and sacrifice.
