THE LIGHT IS ON FOR YOU

On Monday, March 9th, March 16th and March 23rd from 6:00-7:00 p.m., and on all Mondays in Lent, we will be offering confessions here at St. John the Evangelist Church, together with all the Catholic parishes in the Diocese of Scranton This outreach is called "The Light Is On For You" and is an effort on the part of the Diocese to highlight the importance of the sacrament of Reconciliation in the life of Catholics and make it as easy as possible for every Catholic to come or to return to this great source of God's mercy and healing love.

OPEN YOUR HEART

Look for those in your family, among friends, or in the workplace who might be searching for a spiritual home.  Invite someone new each month to share Mass and a meal.  Give a tour of the church and introduce the pastor.  Let your visitor know that your parish can use his gifts and he will find a new family in your parish.


LOVE FOR HIS HOME PARISH

On the eve of his first anniversary of entering into eternal life, a gift was presented to St. John the Evangelist Church from the estate of Father Bill Hines.   Father Bill loved St.John's so much that he chose to have his Mass of Christian Burial celebrated here.   It was at St. John's that he received his foundation in faith.   It was at St. John's that his vocation to the priesthood was nurtured.   He lovingly served as a chaplain in the Navy as well as to parishes of the Archdiocese of Washington.   Please keep "the Padre" and his family in your prayers. He now intercedes for us from his heavenly home.
