Our Collaborative Summer Mass Schedule Begins Sunday, July 7


The Summer Sunday Mass Schedule for our Collaborative will begin on Sunday, July 7. As you will recall, during the summer months we have Sunday 7:30am Masses at both parishes, and a 9:00am Mass at one parish and an 11:00am Mass at the other. This summer, the 9:00am Sunday Mass will be at St. Paul Church and the 11:00am Mass will be at St. John the Evangelist Church.  

Parishioners are encouraged to attend the Masses within the collaborative that are most convenient. Envelopes and checks placed in the collection basket will be returned to your home parish.

Now would be a great time to consider online giving, if you haven’t already. Online giving makes donating to your home parish simple and easy, regardless of where you are or the time of year, and this in turn provides the parish with more consistent and stable contributions. Please visit your home parish’s website or call the office for more information.

Fundraiser for the NPH Immersion and Service Trip to Dominican Republic

We are delighted to have a group of 11 high school students from our Collaborative who, along with their chaperones, will be travelling to the NPH Dominican Republic home in August to experience life in an NPH home and assist with service projects with the community.

This weekend, June 8-9, at all St. John Masses we will be inviting parishioners to take part in a small fundraising effort to help defray the costs to our travelers. We will explain the fundraiser at the Masses, but if you would prefer to make a contribution online, please visit our Youth Ministry NPH page to make a secure, one-time donation.

We will be keeping you up to date with our progress in preparation for the trip, during our time at the home, and when we return.

Thank you so much for your support of our young people and their journey of faith and service.
