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.


Isn’t it time???
Have you been thinking about joining the Catholic Church, but have questions? Are you already baptized Catholic, but have not celebrated your other Sacraments? Do you have children in the Faith Formation program and would like to worship as a family by completing your sacraments?
What’s It All About?????
  • Never been baptized and would like to be?
  • Raised in another Christian faith, but interested in learning if the Catholic Church is where you want to be?
  • Already Catholic by Baptism but have been away or want to complete your missing Sacraments?

An open house to get your questions answered is being planned.

Please leave a detailed message with the best time to contact you.
Making contact does not commit you to the program, but gives you the opportunity to get your questions answered.

Offices Sometimes Closed.
