There is a Drop off Box in the front of the Church for towels you may wish
to donate to the SPCA. Catechism students especially should bring some
old ones. We can’t go to visit the animals at the SPCA without something
Thank you, Judie
The story of Job and Joseph
In the next few weeks the catechism students 1st to 4th grade, 5th to 8th grade,
and High School youths and beyond from the Outreach Program
will rehearse the story of Job and Joseph. The presentation will be performed
according to the Old Testament timeline skilfully detailed by Lucian and Daniel.
Hopefully, we will have this event ready for the parish to enjoy by May.
Also in the plans:
- We will be making homemade valentines for the Wounded Warriers
who have sacrificed so much for our country.
- We are considering a return visit to the SPCA IF enough towels and
blankets are donated.
We can't show up empty handed!
Any one who would like to be a part of our program is welcome to join us.
We meet after the 8:30 Sunday Mass.
Friday Soup Night
Would you like a soup dinner on Friday nights during Lent at 5:30 before Stations of the Cross?
We need volunteers to bring a soup and a couple of people to set up the tables
and chairs and to take them down after the meal.
Judie to volunteer or to say you would like such an event.
September 20, 2022
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
On March 20, 2020, due to the pandemic and our inability to join in our public celebration of
the Eucharist in person, I granted a Dispensation from the Obligation to celebrate Sunday
Eucharist. Beginning the weekend of October 8 /9, 2022, The Twenty-Eighth Sunday of
Ordinary Time, the dispensation is lifted.
As is the case with any illness, if you are sick, you do not have to go to Sunday Eucharist. This
has always been the teaching of the Church. Live-streaming for the celebration of the
Sacrament of Eucharist was never meant to be a replacement for being in person. So, if you
have not begun to return to Mass at your local parish, I invite you to return to Mass because
you are important to the celebration.
Lastly, I announce that as of October 7, 2022, Memorial of our Lady of the Rosary, the
offering of the Chalice to the people of God is to be resumed. The General Instruction to the
Roman Missal is clear that the fullest expression Communion is when both the Body of Christ
and the Precious Blood is offered at every celebration of the Eucharist. Please be assured of
Yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Daniel E. Garcia
Bishop of Monterey

Social outreach students organize the supplies they purchased for those
who attend the peace and justice Thursday lunch.
Last Sunday the Social Outreach members and the catechism students
put together goodie bags for those who attend Thursday's Justice and
Thanks to the generosity of a parishioner who added $300 to the $340
we had collected from the plant sale, we were able to put together
70 goodie Bags for the 70 people who attend the lunch on Thursday.
Each baggie had about $ 5.70 worth of items:
toothpaste, tooth brush, slippers, socks, razors, tuna or chicken salad,
a jar of peanut butter, handy wipes, cupcake, chocolate candy, and water.
Parish Hall renovation
The painting of the inside of St. John's Parish hall was completed this week.
Thank you to the three painter who worked so hard for over a month.

You guys did a great job
Help for the Home Bound
Some parishioners are not able to attend Mass because they need
transportation to Church.
Do you need a ride to Church?
Are you able to provide a ride for someone else?
If enough people respond perhaps we could put together a directory so the
person offering a ride lives in the neighborhood of the one who needs to be picked up.
Call or email Judie 336-1516 <j.kolbmann at sbcglobal.net>

We are also looking for Eucharist ministers who would be available to bring the Eucharist
to homebound parishioners to their homes on sunday mornings. Training will be available.
