Welcome to the Church

Welcome to the Church
of St. John the Evangelist

St. John is a thriving parish community celebrating Masses in English and Spanish. Our Eucharistic Adoration Chapel is normally open 24/7 and provides a spiritual respite for prayer and devotion to the Lord.

The parish was founded in 1861, and church was dedicated 1869. It is one of the most beautiful churches in New Jersey. Learn more about the architectural highlights of Saint John.

“The Lord is immolated in an unbloody way in the Sacrifice of the Mass and He re-presents the sacrifice of the Cross and applies its salvific power at the moment when he becomes sacramentally present—through the words of consecration—as the spiritual food of the faithful, under the appearances of bread and wine.”

Mysterium Fidei, Encyclical of Pope Paul VI

Our Most Powerful Weapon.

Are you praying the Rosary daily? It is our most powerful weapon against the evil one. There is always a time and a place to pray the rosary:

  • While stuck in traffic
  • While walking the dog
  • While jogging
  • On an airplane
  • In the doctor’s  office …

Pray the Rosary daily.
