Liturgy of the Word with Children is currently held every Sunday during the school year (except Easter Sunday and Family Mass Sunday). We will next celebrate the Chilren's Liturgy of the Word on TBD.
The Family Mass is typically celebrated on the First Sunday of the month during the school year. The next Family Mass is scheduled for 10/12/2014 @ 9:00am.
We will be collecting food donations for St. John's after each mass the first full weekend of every month. The next collection will be TBD. Needs: NON-PERISHABLES (Tomatoes, tomato sauce, stuffing, coffee, canned soups, pasta) OR a grocery gift card (which offsets the cost they must pay for paper goods and milk).
The third weekend of every month (next: TBD). Members of the Welcome ministry are at the doors of the Church to assist with the simple registration process or answer any questions about the Parish.
Masses celebrating the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary are at 7am and 9am only. There will NOT be a vigil mass.
