WELCOMING YOU HOME
Welcome to St. John the Apostle Catholic Parish. Whether you are visiting for the first time or a regular member, we extend to you a warm welcome.
Empowered by the Holy Spirit, St. John the Apostle Catholic Family proclaim God’s love through Scripture, Sacraments, Prayer, Faith Education and Service to one another.
St. John the Apostle parish has been a key part of the Oregon City community since 1846. Although the parish of St. Paul, Oregon, became the first parish of the Vicariate Apostolic of the Oregon territory in 1838, St. John's became the mother parish of the new Archdiocese of Oregon City in 1846.
Greetings to the St. John's family and visitors!
While we are at church, Archbishop Sample has requested that we follow the most recent mask mandate. The mandate is that people 5 years and older need a mask. There are many reasons why people want to wear or not wear masks, but Fr. Maxy asks all of us to wear one in obedience to the direction of Archbishop Sample. Please bring a mask with you when you come to encounter Christ at Mass this weekend. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
