Our Mission

The Mission of “St John XXIII Catholic Church” is to respond to the command of Jesus the Christ, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit – To Teach, To Preach, To Sanctify and To Serve. To Teach and To Preach love among All People through the Scriptures and the continued Revelation of the Holy Spirit, To Sanctify All People through the Celebration of the Sacrifice of the Mass and the Seven Sacraments. To Serve All People through the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy. The Corporal Works Of Mercy: Feed the hungry; Give drink to the thirsty; Clothe the naked; Give shelter to the homeless; Visit the imprisoned; Care for the sick; and Bury the dead The Spiritual Works Of Mercy: Instruct the ignorant; Advise the perplexed; Comfort the unhappy; Bear wrongs patiently; Forgive all injuries; and, Pray for the living and the dead. Our Mission is further exemplified in the Prayer of Peace of our Patron Saint, St. Francis of Assisi: Lord, make the people of this Church an instrument of your peace; Where there is hatred, let us sow love; Where there is injury, let us pardon; Where there is doubt, let us show faith; Where there is despair, let us offer hope; Where there is darkness, let us bring light; and, where there is sadness, let us bring joy. We ask the Divine Master to grant that we may not so much seek to be consoled as to console others; To be understood as to understand; To be loved as to love; For it is in giving that we will receive, it is in pardoning, that we will be pardoned, and it is in dying that we will be born to eternal life. This is the Mission of St John XXIII Catholic Church. Let its Bishops, Clergy, Seminarians, and Parishioners uphold this Mission, and be true to it in all they do, administering to all God’s People. Amen.

St. John XXIII Catholic Church Established in 2011 as a Mission, St John XXIII is now a Catholic Church. Its mission is to provide a ministry to a currently under-served need in Indianapolis of lapsed Catholics (there are more Catholics than just Roman, but many of our members are former lapsed Roman Catholics). St John XXIII Catholic Church is an independent Catholic Community providing a Catholic community where Vatican II (2nd Edition Missal) is practiced and promoted as initiated by Pope John XXIII and implemented by Pope Paul VI. We follow the 2nd Edition rather than the later 3rd edition as the 2nd Edition we feel is more inclusive, more open, and more faith-community based. We also believe it is a much more accurate translation than the latest 3rd Edition. . St. John XXIII Catholic Church WELCOMES ALL (NO ONE for ANY reason from receiving the Holy Eucharist). ALL are welcome at our Mass regardless of status (divorced, single, married, gay, straight, bi-sexual, trans-gendered). We believe as Pope John XXIII did that Christ died for all, FOR ALL.
Baptism: Both
Eternal Security: No, Can't Lose
Healing and Charismatic Gifts: Regularly Practice
