WAYS TO GIVE
To maintain and preserve Rochester’s oldest Catholic Church requires significant resources and commitments from parishioners, guests, and friends. Besides the day-to-day maintenance and cleaning, the parish community works hard to make sure the worship, prayer, and inspirational experiences are warm and welcoming to all. For more information on how you can help preserve the Church of St. John the Evangelist, contact Margaret Kelsey at the Parish Center.
