Welcome to Saint John Vianney Parish
We, the parishioners of St. John Vianney Church, affirm our calling to embrace Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, through our faith and to practice in our daily lives, the principles of Christianity that He taught us. Towards these ends, we commit ourselves to make our parish community characterized by love, respect, and mutual support.
As a disciple of Christ the words I strive to live out are, "spiritually united to Christ in prayer, transformed by His Spirit through virtue, and communicating His presence through service." In the end, Christ will ask us, "To what degree did you allow Me to live in you, and to what degree did you communicate Me to others?"
Our church family is filled with cultural diversity. I think you'll find it very open, active and accepting. You'll find a lot of smiles here. But Christ came to put smiles on our faces as He came to bring us divine life, love and joy to the fullest. Enjoy learning more about our St. John Vianney community.!
If there is anything I or our staff can do for you please don't hesitate to ask.
God bless you and yours,
Fr. Chuck Kelly

(From His Excellency, Bishop Jaime Soto, 2017)
I. FASTING AND ABSTINENCE.
To foster the spirit of penance and of reparation for sin, to encourage self-denial, and to guide us in the footsteps of Jesus, Church law requires the observance of fast and abstinence (CCC, nos. 1249-1253).
All persons, 14 years and older, are obliged to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and all Fridays of Lent, with the exception of Friday, March 17, St Patrick’s day. Since St Patrick is a co-patron of this diocese, Bishop Soto has granted a special dispensation from the normal Lenten discipline that day.
Everyone, from ages 18 to 59, is obliged to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Voluntary fasting on other weekdays of Lent, especially on Wednesdays and Fridays, is highly recommended. Fasting is generally understood to mean that one full meal may be eaten. Two other small meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be eaten; but together they should not equal another full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted, but liquids are allowed.
Other forms of fasting, especially from alcoholic beverages, needless television, video games, the internet and social entertainment, is of true spiritual value and is strongly encouraged. When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, neither the law of fasting nor the law of abstinence obliges. If in doubt, one’s parish priest or confessor may be consulted. Airport workers, travelers, and others while on board ships or airplanes are dispensed from the laws of fast and abstinence for the duration of their journey (except on Good Friday). It is desirable that they perform some other pious act instead.
