As Pastor, I stand ready to be of service to any of our parishioners in whatever way I can for the benefit of your sacramental and spiritual needs, night or day. Our Deacon, Don Robers, is committed as well to the pastoral care of our parish. Every so often, I think it is helpful to offer some reminders on how to access our services most easily. Even though we strive to be available at all times, the reality of the current times is that, because of clergy shortages, and because of personal and professional commitments that may cause us often to be away from the parish, we may not always be on site at the church when an emergency arises. Some reminders which should help are the following:
These are some helpful reminders to tap into the spiritual resources and sacraments of our faith here at St. John’s in a different age. May we pray for vocations from our parish (including parents’ willingness to have their child consider a vocation) so that more priests in the future will be available to minister to us, and may our Mother continue to guide us along on the path to greater holiness and sanctity! Please help us in assisting you in meeting you pastoral needs.
All parishioners are welcome to contact me with any questions or to make arrangements to meet with me either by calling the parish office at 385-2549 or by e-mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
