Latest Information

  • From the Pastor:
  • I have a very difficult announcement to make. In my recent visit to Archbishop Shelton, he asked me to consider another assignment as pastor. Although the new appointment was not what I had expected or wanted, with much hesitation I accepted his request to become pastor of Epiphany Church in Louisville. This appointment will begin on June 19. While we will have more opportunities to say goodbye later, I wish to now thank each and every one of you for the love you have shown me in the last several years. To continue serving the needs of our community and by God’s providence, Archbishop Shelton has appointed Fr. Michael Martin to be the next pastor here. I have spoken with Fr. Michael, and he is very enthusiastic and eager to know and serve you here at Saint John the Apostle. Fr. Michael will have the opportunity to introduce himself, but I trust that God is watching us and influencing the course of our faith in him. I will offer Fr. Michael my assistance in this transition.
  • Please keep our Parish, Fr. Michael, and me in your prayers in the coming months. Thank you, and May God continue to bless all of you! Fr. Toa

    New Opportunity for Feedback to the Synod
    The “Interim Stage” for the Synod on Synodality is the
    period between Synod of Bishops’ meetings in
    October 2023 and October 2024. All are invited to
    participate in consultation that will contribute to
    preparation for the October 2024 Assembly in Rome. The
    United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has recommended that dioceses conduct two to three
    listening sessions during Lent. The Archdiocese of Louisville will hold three listening sessions during February and March:
     Wednesday, March 13, 7-8:45 p.m. St. Margaret Mary
    (Door #5, Hospitality Room) 7813 Shelbyville Road, Louisville

    All are welcome! To prepare for this consultation,
    participants should prayerfully reflect on the
    questions below:
    1) Where have I experienced or witnessed ways in which
    Church structures, leadership, or life
    encourage and foster our shared mission?
    2) Where have I experienced or witnessed ways in which
    Church structures, leadership, or life
    hinder our shared mission?
    3) How can the Church’s structures and organization help
    us to proclaim the gospel and live as a
    community of love and mercy in Christ?
    For questions, contact Richard “Tink” Guthrie,
    Archdiocesan Synod Coordinator, at
    tguthrie@archlou.org or 502-585-3291.

Parish Registration

- Registration Form


By registering at a parish, you are declaring your desire to be part of a Catholic faith community. If you have recently moved to the area or if you are a long-time resident, please consider registering at the parish where you participate. There’s usually information in a parish bulletin or in the pew racks about how to register. When in doubt, ask a priest after Mass. In most cases, you will need to visit the parish office and fill out a simple form

Top Reasons to Register at a Parish

-A sense of belonging and identity in a parish community.
-It is a commitment to practice your faith.
-Registration enables the parish pastor and staff to get to know you better, to welcome you and to minister to you. This is especially important during a time of crisis so that the pastoral staff can attend to your spiritual needs and the needs of your family.
-Registration helps you stay connected with your parish and helps your parish stay connected with you. Providing your contact information is important so that parishes provide you timely updates via email, direct mail, phone, etc. Also, if you use offertory envelopes or online giving, you will also receive a year-end statement of your donations for income tax purposes. -Once you are registered, please notify the parish office of any changes in address or phone number.
-Registered active members are eligible for sponsor/godparent validation.
-Registered active members are sometimes eligible to rent parish facilities.
-Census numbers may determine how many priests are assigned to a parish and how many Masses and enrichment programs are planned and scheduled.

What about Children who are 18 Years of Age or Older? Children are considered members with their parents until they turn 18 years old. Once they are 18, it is their responsibility to join a church family, participate in the Mass and to register as a member independent of their parents.
