During these challenging times, it is difficult not to address the financial difficulties created by the extended period of time that people are away from church. As a point of reference, on a typical Sunday we would collect well over 300 envelopes in addition to cash at our Masses. This last weekend, we received 10 envelopes in the mail. While certainly much of what we do has slowed down or in some cases stopped, a good portion of our costs do continue, in particular the manner in which we minister to our employees and the maintenance of our facilities. I recognize that this outbreak has put a strain on all of us and I am grateful for whatever support you can provide to St. John’s during this unprecedented event. I have noted the ways you can give below. Most importantly I continue to ask for your prayers for me, Fr. Michael and the entire St. John’s community as we come into the holiest season of our Catholic faith.
Please know of our continued prayers for all of you.
