History of parish I found here.
St. John the Evangelist Church parish began in 1876 as a small building called "Ecole St. Jean." The "small school" was staffed by two Mt. Carmel sisters as teachers and was used as a chapel once a month. As the congregtion grew, St. John was officially recognized as a Legal Entity in 1919. Today’s church was built in 1930, renovated in 1955 and again in 1981. Parish plant includes a cemetery, rectory and the Father de la Fuente Parish Hall. In 1978, the parish added some 13 acres to its property to allow for parking and future expansion. A Family Center was built in 2000 and is used as C.C.D. classrooms.
