St. John Fisher Parish Family 

Our Mission

The Christian Outreach Committee (COC) of SJF Parish provides opportunities for parishioners to (1) live their faith by partnering in care for others and (2) by supporting and sustaining the strength of a faithful community through initiatives of service and outreach that produce lasting benefits.  

 We are always looking for new members as we research and plan various events for parishioners to act on what Jesus asks of us – “Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.“   John 13:14-15

Our initiatives focus primarily on food insecurity, financial insecurity and parishioner & community support – we offer recurrent monthly opportunities, monthly scheduled outreach initiatives and various other initiatives as scheduled throughout the year. Please mark your calendars with the opportunities that interest you and stay tuned for more details as the various dates approach.

St. John Fisher Parish Vision:

We are a beacon of God’s gracious and merciful love as we glorify His name through service to others; devotion to His teachings and His Son Jesus; and by maintaining a welcoming, accepting and embracing Catholic community of faith that judges none, embraces and protects the vulnerable, builds community of all ages and life stages and acts for the greater Glory of God.

St. John Fisher Parish Mission:

We provide an open, welcoming and active Catholic faith community that is inspired by the gifts of the Holy Spirit as we demonstrate our faith by (1) actively participating in Mass and the Sacraments, (2) by serving and ministering to others, (3) by exploring and sharing the Word and teachings of Jesus and (4) by openly embracing the various needs of our entire parish family and broader community in Christ.
