GRACE MINISTRIES: During these unusual and difficult times Grace Ministries is in need of our assistance now more than ever. With the closing of businesses, schools and day cares, many more people are in need of both monetary and food assistance. Not knowing what their exact needs are, it would be better to send monetary donations so they can use it where it is most needed. If you are able to make a donation you may send it directly to: Grace Ministries, P.O. Box 301, Burkburnett, Texas 76354. Every little bit helps.
SUNDAY PLEDGES: For those who normally place their pledges in the offering plates on Sunday, you can either mail it directly to the church or you can make your pledge through our website from the “Donate” page. Even during this unusual time we need to continue to support those local charities who depend on St. John’s contributions and we still need to keep the lights on.
THE CHRISM MASS will be conducted with minimal staffing on Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. on Facebook Live. At this time, it is believed it will be streamed through the Cathedral’s Facebook page.
BISHOP’S COMMITTEE MEETING: With the county-wide shelter-in-place extended until May 4th, we will find another solution for the April meeting. More information on this will be forthcoming.
CARING FOR OTHERS: Fr. John, Fr. Randy and Deacon Melody will continue to bring communion to you on Sunday after mass as long as possible. If there is anything you need at that time, or any other time, please contact one of us so that we can help address and meet those needs.
