We’ve been looking in this series at how God orchestrates certain moments that are brimming with meaning in the life of People moments that draw them closer to him; moments that challenge or stretch people; moments that give people a fresh start; or moments that call us to a greater cause.
Father Gregory A. Reichlen
To all parishioners, staff,
Happy New Year! 2021
Dear brothers and sisters,
We are excited about a new series for the New Year, that can help us all with the fresh start that we all need in 2021. Psychologists tell us that when we look back at seasons of our life, we look especially at defining moments.
heart is giving heart A wide-open heart that thinks of others first.
Church of St. John Christmas 2020:
A Christmas to Remember!
Posted In Church Bulletin | Posted On December 2020 | Posted By Heathers
Dear friends of St. John’s,
The in-person Masses will be Thursday December 24 at 4 pm, 7 pm, and 10 pm; and Friday December 25 at 10 am (no Midnight Mass this year). Because we expect all of the Bishop’s requirements of social distancing, wearing a mask, and limited participation (i.e. no singing, etc.) to still be in place, we know that this experience will not be what we normally expect for Christmas worship. Covid may still be around, but we will make every effort to protect everyone and still REJOICE! Reservations will be required for these Masses. There will be a very limited number of spots available for walk-ins; thus, we ask everyone who plans to attend an in-person Christmas Mass, to register beforehand.
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.
''Our Lady of Guadalupe''
The most important event in the evangelization of the New World occurred in December, 1531. Over the course of four days, the Virgin Mary, under the title of Our Lady of Guadalupe, appeared to an indigenous convert named Juan Diego.
