St. John the Apostle 聖若望宗徒堂

I'm New to St. John the Apostle 聖若望宗徒堂, Vancouver 温哥華. Where Do I Start?

Welcome to the Parish Community

Welcome to the parish community! We’re so glad you’ve decided to join us. If you haven’t already, say hi to our parish priest, Father Anthony Ho. He would love to meet you.

Doors are usually open early before Mass starts, and coffee is also available after the service so feel free to come up to any of our volunteers and introduce yourself. We have various ministries available in the parish so please don’t hesitate to ask any of our volunteers about ways to get connected.

Here at St. John the Apostle we want to love God, to love one another, and to make the name of Jesus known.

Mass: What to Expect

If you have never been to Mass before, or if you haven’t gone in a long time, we are excited to have you join us as we celebrate and worship together.

We understand that it may feel foreign at first, and that some parts might seem confusing. The last thing we would want is for you to feel unwelcome during the service, so we have created a little guide for you to help you understand the liturgy a little better.

Why go to mass? Sacraments

A Letter from Father Anthony

Welcome to St. John the Parish website! We are a Catholic community in the Kerrisdale area of Vancouver, BC. Please feel free to explore our site. If you are new to the area and would like to join our parish, please kindly introduce yourself to me. My email is [email protected] If you have been away from the Sacraments, we warmly invite you to come home. Confessions are usually available before all Masses. If you are not a Catholic yet, we invite you to explore the Catholic Faith by joining our Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) program to learn and to experience the Catholic Faith. We are happy to answer any questions you might have regarding the Catholic Faith and our community. May God bless you and your loved ones!
