Core Commitment 2022

From the Office of the Pastor
October 12, 2022

Dear Parishioners of St. John the Baptist,

When we are restored to abundant life in Christ, we don’t need to worry about the wind and waves that might surround us.  Instead, we live in joy and hope because we rely on Christ to make us strong and give our lives meaning.

Here at St. John’s, we are committed to being restored by living out our core values.  That restoration will help us fulfill our mission to GO. MAKE. TEACH.  You will find many opportunities and ideas for supporting this mission as you review this brochure.  I invite you to consider how God is calling you to rely on prayer, be willing to grow, and live out of a generous spirit in this coming year!

Thank you for all you are doing to help the light of Christ shine brightly here in New Brighton and beyond!  Be assured of my prayers for you and your loved ones!

As the Father loves me, so I also love you!

Father Paul Shovelain
Pastor
