Capital Campaign

St. John the Evangelist School Opens New Building! from Archdiocese of Atlanta on Vimeo.


Every masterpiece began with a simple thought, a nudge, a whisper of things yet to be. Ask Karen Vogtner or any student at St. John’s school, past and present. They’ll tell you what happens when dreams are placed in the hands of God and given wings by the Holy Spirit. They know. They saw it happen.


Ground was broken on August 15, 2015 to the applause of parents, students, faculty, staff and partners in community. Construction continued throughout the school year and summer. Foot by foot it climbed: a multi-floor enrichment center covering 14,687 square feet, housing a full-size gymnasium, stage, band room, chorus room, and fully functional art room complete with kiln. There was a lot of work to be done, but the hands were ready. The cost was substantial, but the hearts gave substantially more. The dream was big, but God was bigger.


A little over a year later, excited young faces gathered around Archbishop Gregory, Superintendent Diane Starkovich, Mrs. Vogtner and many loving priests and deacons. The ribbon was cut, the whisper emerged as a voice, the dream became reality. Archbishop Wilton Gregory gave direction to that reality with a blessing, “May all who come here know the presence of Christ, experience His friendship, and grow in His love.”
