Welcome from Father John

Dear Friends,

I would like to take this opportunity and welcome you to our parish Website.  Since 1983 San Juan Del Rio has offered a community of faith, Eucharist and fellowship to families from throughout northwest St. John’s County.  Today we have over 2,600 families and are growing.

We provide Catholic education from Pre-K 3 through 8th grade in our Catholic School and also offer Religious Education to over 800 children.  We have a very active Adult Faith Formation Community as well as many clubs and organizations that support our many spiritual and social activities.  Please come visit us.  We are located at 1718 State Road 13, North, in beautiful Saint Johns, Florida.

In 2007, we opened our new Church that seats over 1200 people per mass.  We are in the process of assessing the needs of our growing faith community and responding to our mission:

We, the Catholic family of San Juan Del Rio,
Recognize and accept God’s blessings.
United in faith and fellowship,
We willingly commit our time, talent and treasure
In answer to His call to “Build My Church”

Our mission is guided by the following principles: 

  • The celebration of God’s grace through our participation in the seven sacraments.

  • Our living each day, in a manner that reflects God’s presence in us.

  • The living, as good Samaritans, with care and concern for others.

  • The active embracing and enriching of our community.

  • The maintaining of both the physical and spiritual Body of Christ.

  • The training and teaching of Catholic values to our parish community.

  • The preservation and continuation of the traditions of the Catholic Church.

We would be very blessed for you to join our parish!

In Christ,
Father John Tetlow, Pastor
