CATHOLIC COMMUNICATIONS CAMPAIGN Communication is the essence of St. John’s Gospel, for Christ is the Word of God made flesh, not simply a prophet who was commissioned to convey God’s message to his chosen people. It is no wonder that the Catholic Church in the United States celebrates World Communications Day and holds a special collection each year to enable us to Share the Good News “beyond the pew”. Please prayerfully consider what you can do to support this ongoing work of the Catholic Church in the Catholic Communications Campaign to be taken up at all Masses this weekend. The rosary is prayed each weekday morning after the 7:00 a.m. Mass. All are welcome.

LEAVING MESSAGES ON THE VOICE MAIL When leaving names and telephone numbers on the RECTORY VOICE MAIL, you should speak slowly and distinctly. Many times we are unable to properly get the names and telephone numbers of the callers because they speak so quickly. One should keep in mind that the secretary or pastor has to write down those items in order to call back. Thank you!!!
