What's Happening at SJE
This Week
Twenty-Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time
October 6/7, 2018

In Sunday's Gospel Jesus teaches us about the sacredness of marriage; a covenant that is a gift from God. Our relationships with our spouses, family, friends, coworkers, and those in our community of faith are all gifts from God. Jesus reminds us today that it is the hardened heart that damages or breaks up relationships. Good stewards understand the holiness of relationships and pray for the love, patience, understanding, and kindness necessary to sustain those relationships. Take time to prayerfully reflect on your relationships this week. Is your stewardship of these relationships as God intended? What relationships need to be healed and reconciled? 
First Saturday Confession

Just a reminder that this Saturday, October 6, is the First Saturday of the month. In addition to reconciliation on Saturday morning after the 8:00 a.m. Mass, Confession will be available at 3:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the church. Reconciliation is a great way to keep ourselves firmly united with God, as well as an opportunity to receive grace, to turn from sin, and believe ever more deeply in God's generous Mercy.
SCRIP Schedule

October 6/7 and 20/21 will be the upcoming SCRIP weekends. Scrip is also available on Thursdays from 2:45 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. in the church hall during the school year. As always, SCRIP is available in the Parish Office during regular business hours.
This program allows .5% of your regular shopping on Amazon to be donated to St. John the Evangelist. If you purchase Scrip, St. John's receives an additional 2.25%. That's 2.75% of your purchases to St. John's if you are already shopping Amazon.
What's Happening in Our School
Soles for Catholic Schools Walk

Soles for Catholic Education Walk will be held on Saturday, October 20, at Mount Mary University. Sign up is free and includes a t-shirt for every participant.  If you join us for the walk please consider seeking pledges. Pledges collected come right back to our school where they are used to purchase updated textbooks and student technology equipment.  If you collect pledges, we ask that you send them directly to school rather than donating through the Soles Walk website, as there are processing fees removed from donations made via the web. 

Sign up for the walk must be completed online by clicking the link below:

Please search for St. John the Evangelist. The name of our team is SJE Flock of Eagles

We hope that you will join us for this fun, family-oriented event.
