Jr High and High School Faith Formation
Two new programs are beginning at SJA starting this October.
Jr High Faith Formation is for teens in middle school (7th and 8th grade). We will meet on Wednesday nights 6:30-8pm. We'll have fun, eat snacks, learn more about our awesome Catholic faith and we'll even get to spend a few minutes with Jesus in adoration!
High School Faith Formation is for teens not registered for Confirmation this year (this includes returning teens who were recently Confirmed). We will meet Wednesday nights 6:30-8pm. As always, we'll have food, fun and adoration time with Jesus.
To register go to: www.sja-catholicchurch.com/teens (and click the button for your program).
To renew the Church by enkindling a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
To inspire a movement of Catholics across the United States who are healed, converted, formed, and unified by
an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist—and who are then sent out on mission “for the life of the world.”
JUNE 2022 - JUNE 2023
Year of Diocesan Revival
Launching on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, or Corpus Christi, the first year invites
diocesan staff, bishops, and priests to what Pope Francis has described as “a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ”—particularly the transforming power and mercy of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. Each Diocese will offer events that encourage the faithful to grow in their understanding and devotion to Christ in the Eucharist, complemented by online formation and resources that will raise up Eucharistic Missionaries at all levels of the Church! Please join us in prayer for the renewal and healing of the United States as we answer this historic call to revival.
JUNE 2023 - JUNE 2024
Year of Parish Revival
The second phase will foster eucharistic devotion at the parish level, strengthening our liturgical life through eucharistic adoration, missions, resources, preaching, and organic movements of the Holy Spirit. These local efforts will help convert hearts and minds to fall more deeply in love with Jesus Christ, truly present in the Holy Eucharist.
National Eucharistic Congress
At this historic event, more than 100,000 Catholics of all ages will gather in Indianapolis to worship our Risen Lord in his humble disguise. The Holy Spirit will enkindle a missionary fire in the heart of our nation as we reconsecrate ourselves to the source and summit of our faith.
JULY 2024 - JULY 2025
National Year of Mission
From the Congress in 2024 through Pentecost of 2025, the entire American Church will be sent on mission to share the gift of our Eucharistic Lord with their local communities and beyond. Let the light shine forth!
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.
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.
