Saint John… the Apostle Parish

We are a growing flock of Roman Catholic evangelists on Nova Scotia’s South Shore. Be a missionary disciple! Join us as we go forth in peace to announce the Gospel and glorify the Lord.

Decree of Establishment


Sharing the Good News is the universal Church’s primary mission. Baptized Christians are commissioned to lead others to Jesus in word and deed. John the Apostle, also known as John the Evangelist, is our Parish’s patron saint and guide. By confidently proclaiming the truth and intentionally doing the good as John the Apostle did, hearts may be converted to Christ and souls saved.

Prayer to Saint John the Apostle

John, the apostle and evangelist, virgin chosen of the Lord, you were loved by the Lord above the others. Jesus Christ, dying on the Cross, entrusted His Virgin Mother to you.

God our Father, You have revealed the mysteries of Your Word through John the apostle. By prayer and reflection may we come to understand the wisdom he taught.

We ask this through Jesus Christ, Your Son, Our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
