About Us

Vision Statement

Our purpose is to gather as a family rooted in Christ to grow in holiness in order to serve others as we build up the Kingdom of God.


Mission Statement

To enthusiastically gather as a parish family to celebrate the Love of Christ through the sacraments, liturgy, and prayer.  We grow in knowledge and wisdom of the Catholic Faith which bears fruit in hospitality and service to others.



St. John Fisher is a Catholic elementary school (K-8), partnering with families to enable each child to develop as a whole person: spiritually, morally, academically, socially, physically and culturally, by offering a holy, safe, disciplined, and inspiring learning environment.
