Welcome to Our Parish

St John’s is the centre of the catholic faith in Riverstone under the patronage of the Apostle, St John the Evangelist. We work to be a welcoming faith community offering a home of spiritual hope and to help to all in need. Through the use of our gifts and liturgical celebrations we strive to build a prayerful, welcoming community to serve all for the love of God.

Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him, says the Lord.
