"How nice it would be if we remembered what we are more often, what the Lord Jesus has made us, we are His body, that body that nothing and no one can snatch from Him and which he covers with all His passion and all His love, just like a bridegroom with his bride.
Pope Francis

WORSHIP: The Intimate Encounter with Christ


The Mass is the primary place of intimate encounter with the Risen Jesus here at St. John’s. Why does the Church ask those who make up the Body of Christ to gather at least once a week to receive his living Presence in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass? Because “without me, you can do nothing” (Jn 15:5). This is the humble recognition of those who seek to love the Father by “keeping Holy the Sabbath” every Sunday.

Altar Servers
You may volunteer to be an altar server if you are in fifth grade or above.  Training for altar servers is HELD on an as-needed basis, usually once a year, and consists of four sessions lasting 1.5 hours each. Once trained, servers commit to assisting at one mass per month, at a minimum.  A monthly schedule is created and posted one week prior to the new month.  Please contact Michelle Hayes, Altar Server Coordinator, with any further questions at m1chellewh@aol.com.  Elva Riley coordinates altar servers for special masses.  

May Altar Server Schedule


  • All servers are to be at Mass 15 minutes before the scheduled start. 

  • New servers are asked to introduce themselves to the priest and the other servers.

  • Please have servers dress appropriately (no flip flops)

  • If your child cannot serve as scheduled, it is your responsibility to find a replacement prior to Mass.  If you are replacing an experienced server, please find another experienced server so that the new servers can get "on the job" training and guidance from the older servers.

The Ushers at St. John's welcome parishioners and visitors to Mass with  a warm smile and a greeting. Ushers are also responsible for collecting the  offering, distributing the parish bulletin, and ensuring that the pews are  tidied up after Masses.

We need help at all Masses, so if you would like to share your time and  talent by participating in this ministry at St. John's, please contact us at  sjeushers@gmail.com.

Anima Christi

Soul of Christ sanctify me; Body of Christ, save me; Blood of Christ, inebriate me; Water from the side of Christ, wash me; Passion of Christ, strengthen me; O Good Jesus, hear me; Within your wounds, hide me; Never permit me to be separated from you; From the wicked enemy, defend me; In the hour of my death, call me; And bid me to come to your side, that with your saints I may praise you, for ever and ever. Amen

-Blessed Bernadine of Feltran
