Saint John's along with Collette Travel is planning a trip to the Holy Land September 16-24, 2019, A Pilgrimage to Israel: Discovery. This includes a stroll through the winding alleys of historic Jaffa, visit Capernaum, the center of Jesus' ministry in Galilee, stop at Shepherds' Field where the angels appeared on Christmas night, discover the ancient cities of Nazareth and Bethlehem, travel to Tel Megiddo, site of the final battle before the coming of the Messiah, stand in the upper room, near the traditional site of the Last Supper, and get a taste of the local flavor when you enjoy lunch at a kibbutz. Collette will be doing a presentation in the parish hall. Please stop by and pick up a brochure or visit the trip web page
Note: The information session, originally scheduled for February, has been rescheduled to March 16, 2019, at 6:00pm.
As the parish community changes, so do the health concerns of its members. We would like to invite nurses, other health care professionals, and anyone interested in health to participate in the Parish Health Ministry. There are several ways to participate to keep everyone involved.
We are interested in providing programs on health issues such as the Catholic Health Care Proxy, the opioid epidemic, and supporting care givers who are taking care of loved ones. Nurses are needed to assist with blood pressure screening once a month. Participation is flexible and is based on your availability. Blood Pressure Screening occurs on the second weekend of the month before and after the Saturday 4pm mass and after the 7:30 am Sunday mass. Please leave your name and number in the parish office. Once the Parish Health Ministry receives your name we will call you. Also feel free to drop in to room 1 on our blood pressure screening weekends to talk with one of us.
Rev. Fr. Paul V. MacDonald was honored for the Sixtieth Anniversary of his Ordination into the priesthood on Sunday, February 3, 2019. Ad multos annos!
After much contemplation we have decided we will no longer be able to have our Saturday evening 7:00pm Mass. Our final Saturday 7:00pm Mass will be on January 12, 2019. The attendance has just been too low. We recognize that there are several parishioners that have regularly attend this Mass. We regret the inconvenience.
Our next Blood Pressure Screening is scheduled for Saturday, March 9, 2019, before and after the 4:00pm Mass and on Sunday, March 10th, 2019, after the 7:30 am Mass in Room 5-6 of the Parish Center.
The next meeting of the Saint John Parish Health Ministry will be held on Wednesday, March 6th, 2019, at 7pm in the Parish Library. New Members are welcome. It is not necessary that you be a nurse or health care professional to be part of our Health Care Ministry.
Take a look and take out a book.
Project Rachel is named after the Old Testament figure Rachel, who weeps inconsolably for her children "who are no more" until God came to her, offering hope for her future. (Jeremiah 31:15-17)
At present the Liturgical Committee is calling parishioners to serve in the following ministries, Eucharistic Ministers are called not only to minister the Body and Blood of Christ, but to have and maintain a strong faith, a sense of awe, and an inclusiveness of others as the foundation for their ministry. The ministers accomplish this by strengthening their faith from within and sharing it with the faithful at communion time.
There are additional duties available at Saint John?s that you can participate in that will allow you to assist the parish and help you serve your faith. We need people willing to serve as Lectors or Adult Altar Servers.
If you do not wish to be out in front, you may wish to care for the altar or arrange for the flowers. Whatever your expertise, your assistance would be greatly accepted. No job or amount of time is too little.
If this speaks to you and you would like to be involved or just to find out more, please call or email Mary Campion.
