Parish Support and Finances

Our Offertory this weekend, May 19th/20th has two Intentions:  our Regular Parish Support Collection and the Communications Collection.  The basket will be passed once.  We thank you for your generosity.

Prior Week Offertory: $5,750.00 – Budgeted Goal: $6,100.00

Weekly collection funds the day to day operations of the Parish.

FYTD Off.: $246,098.00 – Budgeted Offertory: $268,400.00

Our fiscal year to date totals began as of July 1st, 2011.

This week’s second collection supports The Catholic Communication Campaign (CCC).  If Jesus Christ were on earth today, how would he spread his message of salvation?  Wouldn’t He use all communication vehicles to share the Good News?  The CCC believes Jesus would use as many means as possible and that is why it supports projects that use the entire array of media tools available today to evangelize and promote Gospel values.

Please visit www.USCCB.org/ccc. for more information.

Next week’s second collection supports the formation and training of seminarians in the Archdiocese of Boston for service, we pray, as future priests.  We are blessed that many are responding to the call to serve as priests.  Please be generous to support these seminarians on their journey toward their ordination to the priesthood.

Please visit www.VocationsBoston.org.

HOMEBOUND PARISHIONERS

            St. John’s Parish is blessed with many extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist, many of whom bring Holy Communion to those who are unable to come to church on Sunday.  This is a wonderful ministry and truly connects our homebound parishioners with the rest of the worshipping community through the Eucharist.  We are always interested in identifying people who are homebound and who would like a visit from a Eucharistic Minister.  If you have family members who are homebound or know of parishioners who are homebound and desirous of receiving the Eucharist on a regular basis, please contact the rectory at 617 846-7400.

= = = = =

IMPORTANT NOTICE

            We are updating our communion list for the homebound.  If you are presently bringing communion to anyone in the parish, please give Sister Jane their name, address and phone number.  Call 617 846-7400 or email:  j_iannaccone320@hotmail.com  Please note, if Sister Jane assigned a person to you, you do not need to respond.
