COVID UPDATE - Guidance for Non-Liturgical Meetings

Gatherings of up to 50 people are allowed as long as social distancing and cleaning/disinfecting guidelines are adhered to and mask are worn. Meetings such as parish committees, KC, Ladies, bingo, blood drives, just to name a few, are permitted on parish campuses.

We the parishioners of St. John the Baptist, brothers and sisters in Christ, accept as our mission:

to know our faith and share it with others,

to continue to grow spiritually with respect for the sacraments,

to celebrate the liturgy and the Holy Eucharist as the center of our Christian life,

to live by truth and love,

to serve those in need, to teach by example, and thereby strengthen and inspire our Parish family in accordance with the Roman Catholic Church.

PSR Families

I hope and pray you are all well. I am working hard on an opening date for our program. I am on a committee put together by the Diocese that is creating the guidelines for a safe reopen for our program. Most of what we are deciding looks very similar to what our school district is doing. We are currently looking at a mid-September start date. Registration will take place electronically or by mail. A form will be emailed or mailed to families and returned to my email or mailed to the church. One will be made available on the church's website and posted on the PSR Facebook page. Please send me your email address to ensure that I have a correct and current one ( Please be patient with us as we try to put the best plan in place for the safety and well being of all.

Deacon's Notes:

In Matthew's Gospel even the wind and the sea obey Jesus. The Old Testament credits God alone with authority over the sea (Job26). Aware of this, the disciples marvel and question Jesus' identity. It wasn't until later, when Jesus walked on the water, they worshiped Him as "The Son of God." V 14:33 They said: "Truly You are The Son of God." When Peter walked on the water, he became afraid, and started to sink, he said; "Lord save me." Jesus said; "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?" We as Christians, should stay strong in our faith and have no doubt, because we know who is in charge, right? Let's give it to God every day, Amen!

Good day and God Bless, Deacon Arch.
