I have several items I want to pass on to you this week.
I wanted to give you a heads up on two annual appeals that will be conducted throughout the Archdiocese in May: Catholic Charities and Mis-sionary CoOp. The weekend of May 15th/16th the Catholic Charities will happen here at St. John’s. Our parish goal is $21,738.00 which has been unchanged for the past three years. The weekend of May 29th/30th, Sister Dorothy Fabritze of the Missionary Sisters of the Most Sa-cred Heart of Jesus will be with us to speak about her community’s missionary ministry.
The wedding season has kicked in. Here at St. John’s 62 couples will celebrate the Sacrament of Marriage.
Historical Endowment Preservation Fund $436,081.27
Thank you for all you do for our parish and for your commitment to ensure that St. John’s is “Good News in the Heart of Philadelphia.”
Fr. John Daya
