We have come to a very difficult decision regarding the regular Sunday Mass schedule here at St. John’s. Beginning February 11, we will temporarily suspend offering the 7:30am Sunday Mass. Being reduced to one resident English speaking priest means that we are now experiencing the effects of the priest shortage we have all been reading about. We cannot continue to provide the number of Masses. Please pray for vocations to the priesthood but particularly pray that the archdiocese will be able to assign another priest to serve our parish community as soon as possible.
