Welcome to St. John Chrysostom!
We strive to make our parish a beacon for all who seek God's light ... read more.
"Jesus no longer belongs to the past, but lives in the present and is projected towards the future. God's newness appears to us as victory over sin, evil and death, over everything that crushes life and makes it seem less human. ... If up till now, you have kept [Jesus] at a distance, step forward. He will receive you with open arms. If you have been indifferent, take a risk. You won't be disappointed."
