Dynamic Parish

“God Transforms Parishes One Person at a Time.”—Matthew Kelly


What is Dynamic Parish? Dynamic Catholic has been inspiring Catholics to rediscover the genius of Catholicism through the development of world-class resources and life-changing events for a decade. They will spend the next decade helping parish communities like ours grow and thrive through an initiative called Dynamic Parish. They invited us to pilot this program in our parish for five years at no cost to us. There are over 15,000 parishes in America. Ours is one of just 61 that was selected. During the five years, Dynamic Catholic will invest more than a million dollars in our community through engaging and energizing events, programs, and resources. Parish consultants will walk alongside our pastor and parish leaders, share best practices and support us at every turn.


We believe what God will do in the life of this parish and in the lives of our parishioners over the next 5 years will be extraordinary. We want to mark the beginning of this new chapter is our parish’s effort to our very best. We couldn’t be more excited.

Our first step in this Dynamic Parish initiative, is to take a deeper look at where we have been, where we are, and where we hope to go in our individual faith lives and as a community. During the weekend of Nov 16 & 17 we will be taking the Dynamic Catholic Bigger Future Survey. No matter where you are in your faith life, we invite you to join us so that we can better identify the next step in our collective journey toward having a deeper and more meaningful relationship with God and each other. Please keep those dates marked on your calendar. If you were unable to attend Mass that weekend please click the link below to take the survey online. You will prompted to which Diocese (San Diego)  and Parish (Saint John the Evangelist). Skip the question regarding a ‘Code’ and begin taking your survey! It’s completely anonymous. Thank you.

DREAM EVENT – January 2020  

Our Final piece of ‘Launching’ Dynamic Catholic within our parish is the Dream Event! We are asking our entire community to join us in the Parish Hall for this interactive and lively meeting. Bring a cell phone! You will need it to respond to the questions with a live feed showing the entire groups responses. Dreaming changes us. It activates us. It transforms us into people of possibility. Dynamic Parish will unleash the power of dreaming in the life of our parish.
