HURRICANE RELIEF -  Due  to  progress  in  the  rebuilding  of  Lake Charles  what is  badly  needed  is  cooking  teams  and  work  crews to help clear the fallen trees which are still hampering  recovery  efforts.  Anyone  who  can  assist  in  the  tree  clearing  efforts  is  asked  to  contact  St.  John  parishioner  Adam  McCarty  at  225-788-1999 or adam@adammccarty.com.

As long as the threat of the coronavirus continues, Bishop Duca’s dispensation from the obligation of Sunday Mass will also remain in effect.  As part of the dispensation, we will likewise continue to stream our 8:30 AM weekday and our 4:30 PM Saturday Vigil Masses on FACEBOOK.COM/ST. JOHNS 70769 and then post the videos for later viewing on our parish website (WWW.STJOHNCHURCH.ORG)

In the meanwhile, if you are in good health and are able to join us in person, and especially join us for Holy Communion, we urge you to do so.  Our Masses are offered at our standard times of 4:30 PM Saturday, 7:30, 9:30 and 11:30 Sunday morning plus 6:00 PM Sunday evening.  Weekday Masses are at 8:30 AM Monday through Friday.

 

Please note all of the measures we take in order to make our church building and Liturgies safe for you:

1)      After every service a team of volunteers disinfects the church (pews, bathrooms, handrails, doors etc.).

2)      Everyone attending Mass must wear a face mask.

3)      Except for family members, a social distance must be kept between all individuals.

4)      Communion ministers must wear masks and sanitize their hands several times.

5)      All Communion bowls are scrubbed after each Mass

6)      Standard missalettes are available on the ushers’ table for families to take home and keep as their own.

7)      Should our quota for safe attendance ever be surpassed, preparations are in place for overflow in the Activity Center.

Also please note the updated procedures for baptism, weddings and funerals.

1)      As a precaution, all baptisms will be done privately.

2)      Funeral and weddings may now host as many as 250 participants.  However, face masks are absolutely necessary for everyone-brides, grooms and wedding parties included.

 Keep Sunday a Holy Day for you and your family!  Pray, read scripture, talk about the scriptures, watch the Mass on television, eat a meal together. 

Sunday Masses are broadcast on COX channel 15 at 10:00am and 12:30pm and on EWTN, COX channel 268 at 7:00am and 11:00am.  Make the Mass a part of your Sunday schedule, don’t just “sleep in”.
