Parish News

Please Support the 2024 Annual Catholic Appeal!

You should have received the letter from Archbishop Etienne this week inviting us to generously support the more than 60 essential ministries and shared services of the Archdiocese through the ACA. We look forward to having St. John parishioner and school parent, Marianne McGah, share her personal story about why she and her family support the ACA each year. Marianne will be speaking at the Sunday Masses on April 28.

St. John’s goal this year is $90,930. Each dollar makes a difference toward helping our many neighbors in need in the wider community of Western Washington, from Vancouver to Blaine and Forks to Snoqualmie. Once we reach our goal, funds collected thereafter will come back to St. John Parish. This year, our rebate will go into our Operating Budget to support necessary maintenance needs. There are always things that need repair, replacement and/or upgrade. For example, you may have noticed that we repaired the cement on the front steps and the walkway on the south side of the church. We also leveled and laid cement at the crosswalk in front of Egan Hall. It is important we continue to make sure these necessary repairs are made promptly to best protect our spiritual home at St. John. 

Please prayerfully consider how you can participate in helping our parish be a light to others. If you have already made your donation, we thank you. The quickest and easiest way to donate is to do so online. Please go to or use the QR code.

Agape Summer 2024 Service Projects

Information, including dates, times, and registration, for the Agape Summer Service projects can be found here. Partnering with Agape and Assumption Parish in Bellingham, these one-day service projects are a meaningful way to foster service, community, and prayer as participants encounter Christ and uphold the dignity of our farmworker brothers and sisters.
