St. John the Evangelist Church, Lawrence, KS


St. John School on PBS

St. John School was featured on KTWU’s Sunflower Journeys as part of a larger story about the Kansas Association for Conservation and Environmental Education (KACEE) and outdoor education. The school is highlighted during the first eight minutes (along with some other KACEE projects). There is some great footage of the SJ Student Green Team planting the gardens that were donated by Westar Energy last spring. See the video below!



Upcoming Events

Tuesday Night Study: The Acts of the Apostles

with Fr. Barnabas

Join Fr. Barnabas on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the months this fall as we study the church-its early mission and its mission today–through the Acts of the Apostles.

The class will use William Kurz’s book. Tuesday night classes will be held in the church basement and begin at 7:00 p.m. Encore sessions will be given on the following Friday at 9:30 a.m. in the St. Bosco room of the school.

The first class will be on the evening of Tuesday, September 9th. Please RSVP to Sr. Marcella in the Simon Parish Center if you are interested in attending: this way we will know how many books to have on hand! You can get in touch by phone or email: (785) 843-0109 or churchoffice@saint-johns.net.


Online Giving

We are pleased to announce that we will be using a new system for our automatic tithing withdrawals. It is called Online Giving, and it will give you complete control over managing your automatic tithing to St. John.

If you are currently giving via automatic withdrawals from your checking account or credit card, switching to Online Giving is a two-step process. Step one is to set up an account with Online Giving, which can be done by clicking on the icon below:

Step two is to email Cris Denning at cdenning@saint-johns.net or call Cris at (785) 843-0109 and request that your tithing account be transferred to Online Giving. Once this transfer is complete in our system you will receive an email from St. John the Evangelist with instructions on how to complete your account set-up.

If you do not currently have automatic withdrawals for your tithing, then please consider enrolling in this new Online Giving program. It is convenient and safe! Just click on the Online Giving icon above.

When you participate your gift will be securely transferred directly into the parish bank account. And you won’t have to remember to write a check or stop by the ATM on Sundays!
