The Parish of St. John the Evangelist is an active and growing faith community in North Vancouver's urban mid-Lonsdale neighbourhood.
The church building is situated on 8th Avenue just east of the Keith Road boulevard at a very busy location for both pedestrian and vehicle traffic. In order to let folks know that ministry continues and that the church is active despite being closed to in-person attendance the parish has strung two professional signs, one across the main church entrance facing north on 13th, and one on the parking lot fence at 8th. The signs feature the parish livery and a positive message:
Stay Home, Be Safe, Be Brave - Join Us Online
You are not alone, we are in this together
St. John's rector, the Reverend Patrick Blaney reports that the signs cost about $100 each and were put up by parishioner and Long Long Night of Hope founder, Donna Lawrence with help from her daughter.
St. John's continues to offer an ambitious program of Zoom worship on Sundays and weekdays.
