Welcome to our Parish

One of the richest blessings of our St John Bosco parish family is our strong sense of tradition. From our original founding as a parish community in 1972, St John Bosco has been home for families who take great pride in our faith and the sense of tradition that has permeated our history.

Good News - Living Stations of the Cross

The Living Stations of the Cross, that was originally scheduled for Palm Sunday, April 5, will be available through live streaming of a prerecorded video on our website. You will still be able to experience this unique dramatic form of the Stations of the Cross. “Journey of Decision” invites us to reflect on our own response as we seek to follow Jesus in our daily life. This is our church members praying the Stations of the Cross in the “first person.”


Please go to our website for the link, this Sunday, April 5 at 3 p.m. or 7 p.m. to pray the Stations of the Cross as a community.


Sometime on Saturday, there will be a link on our website for you to test. Be sure to test ahead of time, so that you will be able to participate in the Living Stations.


We are extremely grateful to Paul Koebbe who has worked many hours this past week to make this possible. Please help us spread the word.


A Note from Fr. Welsch

Dear Parishioners of St. John Bosco Parish,
I was pleasantly surprised with the response I received from everyone after my last email. I'm still very confused with everything happening and I am sure you are as well.
No Masses was one thing but not having Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Easter is mind boggling to say the least. I will bless the Palms on Palm Sunday (April 5) and then have them available in the lobby of the church later that afternoon and then for the rest of Holy Week, Monday through Friday 8 a.m to 5 p.m. Please make sure to maintain your social distancing as you are picking up your Palms.
We have recorded the "Living Stations of the Cross" that were scheduled to be held on Palm Sunday. You are invited to view our recorded version on our website. The website also has a updated information about the parish and if you want, the website will also help navigate you so that you can watch the Mass at the St. Louis Cathedral.
As we learn social distancing, stay safe, and wash those hands.
Let us pray for each other,

Temporary Schedule

Because of the coronavirus, Archbishop Carlson has dispensed all Catholics from attending Mass indefinitely. There are many opportunities for attending Mass via the internet.

Please see the resources on our homepage and the tabs, "Staying Connected Spiritually," "Parish School of Religion", and the "Weekly Bulletin".


The Church will be open from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM daily for private prayer. Please maintain social distancing guidelines.


Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. 


Parents of all Parish Children,

Please take a look at the resources we have made available to you during this time of social distancing. The resources can be found under the Parish School of Religion (PSR) tab. There is something for all ages.


PSR Parents,

Please look weekly for your child's lesson that you will be receiving via the Smore newsletter. All grades should receive an email by Saturday of each week.


If there is anything else that you might want or need to help with your child's catechesis,

please contact me via e-mail Cindy Meirink
