Jesus said when you throw a party invite those who cannot return the favor and you will receive blessing from God. This year St. John's scheduled two Parish Picnics. The first one we had was the parish picnic held in July for those who worship and participate regularly in the life of St. John's. The Second one is this next Sunday, August 24, and we are joining the Sharing Community to have a picnic on the grounds with the people who go there for lunch each day. We welcome volunteers to help us with tables and to serve food. We will begin setting up after the service at 11AM and will be breaking down the tables at about 1:30 PM. To volunteer call (914)963-3033. We we also welcome prayers.

This is a great thing for St. John's. It is a way for us to actively put into practice what we learn in the liturgy God calls us to do!

"What is Faith Friends? Faith Friends is a way for us to express our care for one another and to remember to pray for one another. In the recent past a weekly rhythm of life was the norm, and people showed their care for each other when they gathered at church. Today life follows different rythms. It is harder to depend on the weekly gathering in order to stay in touch. Faith Friends enables us to care for one another even when we do not see each other every week. We commit to pray and make regular contact with one another whether at church, by telephone, or some other way. This allows us to both receive and give spiritual care during the week as well."

link to see our Lenten Guide for 2014. It includes a description of Lenten discipline with some practical ideas. You will also find the weekly schedule for St. John's: perhaps this is a good time to try out one of our mid-week opportunities. It also has the calendar for Holy Week and Easter. A discipline many find fun, educational, and lighthearted is to participate in Lent Madness. Check it out here!

Sunday, February 16, 2014: The roads around the church are not good but passable though be very careful of potholes. The church parking lot has residual snow and ice, can be slippery, but is passable for steady walkers with appropriate footwear taking proper precautions. There are less spaces than usual due to snow accumulation, but if people will remember they can also park along the Hudson Street fence in front of the Sharing Community there should be sufficient space. Please choose to be safe, and if this means you need to stay home by all means do so. Remember to pray for yourself, this parish, and the world, this and every day. Father John.
You can see the parish Weather Policy here.
