Dear Friends in Christ,

As a pastor, it has been a blessing to be ministering in parishes during milestone years. At SS. Cosmas and Damian in Orting, I was there for the 100th anniversary of the community, at St. Andrew in Sumner, we celebrated their 75th anniversary, and while I was pastor at St. Louise de Marillac in Bellevue, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the parish. Now, this year, I am so fortunate to be here at St. John as we celebrate our 150th anniversary.

This significant milestone is filled with many different opportunities and events for us to gather as a faith community and celebrate.  It was such a joy to celebrate Mass on    Memorial Day on the grounds of our parish cemetery where the life of our community began. In November of 1868 Bishop Blanchet, the first Bishop of Nisqually, blessed the little 20 ft. by 30 ft. white chapel that would be home for the St. John Catholic Community for the first 40 years of our existence. In 1908, the community would move to our current site where we have been thriving ever since. Therefore, it is only fitting that we would have a special celebration this summer right here on our parish grounds. Please mark your calendars and save the date for Saturday, July 7, when we will celebrate our 150th Anniversary Parish Picnic from Noon to 4 p.m.  I want to thank our picnic planning committee for all of their hard work in making this a very special day for us. If you are able, please sign up to lend a hand with many of the opportunities there are to serve that day to make it a memorable event for our community. It sure is a great time to be a member of St. John the Evangelist Parish!

Queridos amigos en Cristo,

Como pastor, ha sido una bendición ministrar en las parroquias durante los años de hito. En SS. Cosmas y Damian en Orting, estuve allí por el centésimo (100) aniversario de la comunidad, en St. Andrew en Sumner, celebramos 75 años de aniversario, y mientras era pastor en St. Louise de Marillac en Bellevue, celebramos los 50 años de aniversario de la parroquia. Ahora, este año, soy muy afortunado de estar aquí en St. John mientras celebramos nuestro aniversario de 150 años.

Este importante hito está lleno de muchas oportunidades y eventos diferentes para que nos reunamos como una comunidad de fe y celebremos. Fue una gran alegría celebrar la Misa en el Día de Conmemoración en los terrenos de nuestro cementerio parroquial donde comenzó la vida de nuestra comunidad. En noviembre del 1868, el obispo Blanchet, primer obispo de Nisqually, bendijo la pequeña capilla blanca de 20 por 30 pies que sería el hogar de la comunidad católica de San Juan durante los primeros 40 años de nuestra existencia. En 1908, la comunidad se mudaría a nuestro sitio actual donde hemos estado prosperando desde entonces. Por lo tanto, es lógico que tengamos una celebración especial este verano aquí mismo en nuestra parroquia. Por favor, marque sus calendarios y guarde la fecha para el sábado 7 de julio cuando celebraremos nuestro Picnic Parroquial de los 150 años de aniversario desde el mediodía hasta las 4 p.m. Quiero agradecer a nuestro comité de planificación de picnic por todo su esfuerzo al hacer de este un día muy especial para nosotros. Si puede, regístrese para echar una mano con muchas de las oportunidades que hay para servir ese día para que sea un evento memorable para nuestra comunidad. ¡Sin duda es una buena oportunidad de ser miembro de nuestra Parroquia St. John the Evangelist!
