I proudly present to you a brief informational guide to our parish. As pastor, I am truly honored, humbled and privileged to lead my flock at St. John Berchmans Parish. My parish community is reflective of its geographical location: a truly bilingual mix of Mexican and American cultures. We blend both cultures into our liturgical celebrations; Mexican folklore and songs and American pride in our country and its citizens. We cherish and respect our elderly parishioners and educate and enlighten our youth.
We are consistently searching for ways to enhance and improve the Kingdom of God at St. John Berchmans Parish Community. I hope and pray this website will assist you in connecting with our community and discovering the beauty of its people and the joy of being parishioners in our community. Please make an effort to join us in our Sunday liturgical celebration as we glorify and thank our God for daily blessings and ask for forgiveness and love for each other.
May God bless our community and all its leaders for their tireless work to better the community and to serve God’s people.
Sincerely in Christ,
Father Fidèle Okitembo Dikete
