Update from the Finanace Council During the Corona Virus Pandemic

Like so many parishioners at St. John's, the parish is also feeling the economic impact from the "social distancing" order because of the corona virus pandemic. Most of all, we are concerned regarding the health of our family, friends and staff. We pray daily that all remain healthy. 

Without weekend services that were attended by the faithful, collections have been seriously impacted. Certainly, On-Line Giving and the contributions sent to the church have helped maintain some income.

We are extremely grateful for these contributions. 

Expenses have been significantly reduced. Exterior lighting and HVAC usage have been curtailed. In

addition, staff have been furloughed. Father Greg has asked the Diocese to defer his salary for

three months and though staff is no longer on the payroll may continue to serve the parish as volunteers.

I know I speak for all at St. John's to thank them for their dedication and generosity. We expect

that our "Emergency Budget" during this trying time will cut our expenses in half. 

Bottom line is that we anticipate a shortfall of about $7,000 to $10,000 per month during the

emergency period. Though we expect to stay financially solvent during the next three months by

using savings we ask that you continue to support St. John's if at all possible.

"May we journey together in stewardship... God's resources deployed through God's people to accomplish God's mission."

Not From you, For You

When you give in your place of worship as an act of worship, you are becoming more of the person God wants you to be. When you give, you are tangibly making a difference in someone’s life. Marriages are restored, lives are healed, and people meet Jesus. There’s no better investment in the world than the local parish.
