3.  As you enter the Church we ask you to please sanitize               your hands.  The Ushers will have sanitizer available and       will put the sanitizer on your hands for you if you need          them to that that.

4.  Face masks will be available from the Ushers, or you may wear  your own. Please do not judge if someone does not choose to wear a mask.  Remember in all things charity.

6.  Please follow directions given at the time for                        Communion.  Please extend your hand for communion, not        on the tongue.

As mentioned in a previous conversation, the Parish Pastoral Council has agreed to hold a Cash Raffle to replace the annual fall festival due to its cancellation due to corona virus.  The Council agreed that "When Life Gives You Lemons - Make Lemonade!"  To make some lemonade to help raise funds for extraordinary expenses, we are sponsoring a raffle during the month of August.  you should be receiving shortly a special mailing which includes 4 BOOKS OF RAFFLE TICKETS.   Please see the bulletin for more information!

St. John's Religious  Education Program needs CCD teachers! Teachers are needed for Pre-K and maybe 3\4th grade.  If no one volunteers to teach the Pre-k class, we will not be able to offer the class this year.

The new date for the Annual Diocesan Appeal : It will start September 19th & 20th!
