St. John the Evangelist, Greenfield

Our Parish Roots:

stained glass wndow of ChristOn April 26th, 1916, Fr. Mark Pakiz, with the blessings of Archbishop Messmer, purchased a former Jewish synagogue at 4th Ave. and Mineral, turning it into St. John the Evangelist Parish. Growing rapidly, a new rectory was built in 1938, followed by a new parish hall in 1952.

Due to the creation of I-94, St. John’s was relocated to 28.5 acres where growth continued. Our grade school was opened in 1968, followed by expansion to meet the full range of grades K4-8, with around 170+ students enrolled to-date.

St. John’s remains a vibrant Catholic environment, with consistent school and parishioner growth. There are over 1080 families involved at the parish, signaling a bright future for Catholics in the greater Greenfield community and beyond.

Our Share

Through much prayer, planning, and conversation, we have identified our greatest needs and initiatives to strengthen our mission and vision for years to come. Our share of the funds raised will strengthen our work to update our building, restore our campus, establish a maintenance fund, and enhance evangelization.

Parish Goal


Parish Share


Open AllClose All

Our parish buildings are over 50 years old and need updating and repair. Priorities include tuckpointing, replacing flooring in the classrooms and rectory, replacing kneelers, ceiling fans, and the air conditioner units for the church, Parish hall, and Narthex. We also need to add to the existing security system to cover all areas in the school, the church, and parking lots. These projects will allow us to continue to be a vibrant beacon of God’s word and for all to feel safe in our worship environment.


We need to replace sidewalks and railings throughout our campus. The sidewalks are crumbling, the railings are rusting out, and the playground equipment has been deemed unsafe. Replacing them will give all parishioners, including those with physical limitations, the ability to move around our property safely. Replacing the playground equipment will allow our children to play in a safe environment.


We will continue to have additional maintenance needs at our parish including sealing our parking lots every few years and other future projects. A maintenance fund will allow us to have reserves in place for when these needs arise.


We need to modernize our technology as we update and improve our buildings and our grounds. This will give us the continued ability to evangelize to those who are unable to come to Mass and reach those in need of hearing the Word of God.
