A Message from our Parish Pastor, Father Phil
Dear Parishioners:
          So, anticipating a $600K+ deficit for the current fiscal year, what are some possible ways of proceeding? We’re bouncing around several ideas . . .

Mission Appeal For Zeru Zeru - August 15 and 16
The funds collected through our twinning relationship with ZeruZeru, Inc. continue to pay for the protection, care, and education of the vulnerable children at the center. Sister Helena has reported that it is an especially dangerous time for people with albinism in Tanzania due to the coronavirus and upcoming elections. We are all struggling in this unprecedented time, however, let us continue to come together as one family, sharing our love and kindness, generosity and prayer where and when we are able.

One of our parish families, the Lucia Schwarten family, lost their home and a beloved dog in a house fire at the end of last week. We pray,  Lord give Lucia Schwarten the grace and determination to overcome yet another family tragedy and that the people of St. John the Baptist Parish respond to the Schwarten Family in this time of need in ways truly helpful and generous.
