St John the Evangelist Catholic Church

We are located in the heart of Western Kenosha County – where tradition and country life come together. Our area of the state is growing with sprawling new neighborhoods emerging to meet the growing economic development in this area. We are also a great location for commuters – those who work in Chicago or Milwaukee. Come explore our parish setting where you can experience tradition in God’s country.

In June 2005, St. Alphonsus in New Munster, WI and St. John the Evangelist  in Twin Lakes, WI, began sharing a pastor under the direction of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. In total, we have about 1,100 families – with 500 at St. Alphonsus and 600 at St. John’s

While we are two separate parishes, our efforts are collaborative and coordinated under the direction of our pastor, Fr. Arthur Mattox

Our Mission Statement

Strengthened by the Eucharist, we go out to proclaim the death and resurrection of Christ.

You may be a “bruised reed” in some way today – pressed down with the troubles of this world. Who isn’t after the year we’ve had? Take time this Lent to spend a couple of hours to focus on your bruised spirit and smoldering faith. Jesus will not add to your burden, but lighten the load.
