Honoring the History of St. John the Evangelist Parish Columbia Maryland


As we come to the close of our year-long celebration of the first 50 years of St. John, a team has formed to gather information on the things we have done at St. John over these last 50 years.  We are gathering memories and will publish them on this web site beginning in September.   We are also inviting parishioners to submit stories and, if possible, pictures about the things they remember doing at St. John’s over the years.  Send your remembrances to Paul Gifford at paul.gifford@sjerc.org.

The team will gather stories and add them to this history web site.


The team members are:


Eileen Kiefer

Carolyn Arena

Joe Schaefer

Joe and Mary Rekus

Maria Poppe

Paul Gifford


We look forward to your input. Contact us if you have ideas or questions.
