Message from Fr. William


Dear sisters and brothers,

Welcome to St. John Vianney Catholic Church. We’re glad that you’ve cared enough to check our website. We are a multi-generational and multi-ethnic parish community; a community, where, all are welcome. St. John Vianney is “a people to belong to, a way to believe in and a path to become what God wants you to become.”

We believe that God loves us - not because we’re good; we’re good, because God loves us. “The sun only shines and God only loves” is no exaggeration. His love is for now and forever. It’s being loved by him so unconditionally that makes us feel blessed.

As the Mission Statement of our Parish says, we believe that we’re called “to know and love Jesus, and follow Christ in compassionate service.”  To this end, we see our Christian calling as an invitation to become “disciples who make disciples.”  Having tasted the unconditional love of God, we would like to tell of it to all those that we meet; having experienced a personal relationship with Him, we would like to express it all everyone, and invite them to enter into a relationship with Jesus.

Guided by our Mission statement and driven by the love of God for us, our parishioners immerse themselves in many a ministry; thereby “healing wounds and warming hearts.”  We do all this and more because we believe that people need Jesus, people need each other, people change the world and people leave legacies.

Welcome to St. John Vianney. Come, let’s join hands. Together, we can make the world a better place.

With prayerful wishes and blessings,


Fr. William Rosario, Pastor



ALPHA - Wednesdays 7pm in Vista


Date: Wednesdays 7:00 pm
Location: Mullen Commons Vista


Last Fall we launched the first-ever Alpha Course at St. John Vianney and it was a success! 75 parishioners gathered to explore some of life's big questions; questions that we rarely have enough time to think about such as: Why am I here? What's my purpose? Where am I heading? Is there more to life than this? Many made new friends and some of those ‘new’ friends continue to meet in each other’s homes to share faith and hospitality.


If you crave a deeper connection with God and others, try Alpha. Alpha is a rare opportunity to explore questions of life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. No pressure. No charge. No follow up.


Alpha runs in churches, homes, coffee shops, and bars all over the world. It typically includes a meal, a video and time afterwards for sharing your thoughts. Alpha is open to all people, whether you’re a regular parishioner who’s just curious about what this new program might be or you’re interested in learning more about Christianity, you are welcome to attend!

Moms Ministry Spring Series 

Join us as we explore The Seven Levels of Intimacy: The Art of Loving and the Joy of Being Loved, by Matthew Kelly.

Lower Mullen Commons, Room 3 on Wednesdays, April 11, April 25, May 9 and May 23 at 9:30 - 11:00 am.

Intimacy is a throwaway buzzword in pop psychology, yet it remains a litmus test for the health of relationships and is something everyone should strive for.  Intimacy is the one thing a person cannot live happily without.  What is intimacy? Who energizes you? Why do they energize you? How do you want to be remembered?

SJV Moms Ministry’s aim is to bring moms of ALL ages and stages, together for faith formation, fellowship, support, friendship and spiritual growth as we journey through the biggest Ministry entrusted to us. For more information, email us: This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you have little ones, feel free to bring them along! Walk-ins are welcome!
