Celebrating 175 Years

In celebration of the 175th Anniversary of the founding of St. John the Evangelist Church, we are reissuing the information contained in A Sesquicentennial Celebration which documents the first 150 years of this parish. This book was published in 1990 and copies are no longer available.

The information contained within this history is a compilation of facts gathered through research of the books listed in the bibliography, and perhaps more importantly interviews with many of the members of the parish’s old-name families, most of whom are no longer with us.

Celebrating 175 Years also includes information and photos on the happenings in our parish in the last twenty-five years. Copies are available at the St. John church office located in Mercy Hall for $15 each.
