Goal for the 2018 Cardinal’s Annual Stewardship Appeal:
The Cardinal’s Appeal Office has set our parish goal at $111,000 this year. So far, $42,557 has been pledged
by 133 parishioners.
$41,232 has been paid,
$319.98 is the average gift.
391 parishioners have still not taken part in the campaign.
Let’s try to bring the numbers up before the summer ends.
RED ALERT! The summer months are approaching when our weekly collection drops dramatically, and we begin to die on the vine. Please don’t forget St. Jean’s during the summer. (Our weekly payroll is $20,000…yes, $20,000!) Our rentals keep the church going during the school year but they drop substantially during the summer months. Please do what you can to help us make it through the summer months.

THE PASTOR’S REFLECTION
THE NEW YORK COMMON PANTRY
Since 1980, the Common Pantry has been working to reduce hunger in New York City. They have certainly succeeded in meeting the needs of the community and, last year, served 6 million meals to nearly 500,000 New Yorkers. The Pantry is dedicated to helping the most vulnerable among us, not only by providing food, but by prompting dignity and self-sufficiency. St. Jean’s is happy to continue our support for NYCP.
For the month of August, the pantry is in need of:
• Meals in a can (soup, stew, chili)
• Canned fruit in its own juice or water
PLEASE ASSIST THE WORK OF THE PANTRY by leaving donations of non-perishable food at St. Joseph’s altar. The pantry picks up regularly from the Parish Office.
INTERCESSORY PRAYER GROUP
Every Sunday, the Our Lady of Peace Prayer Group leads an hour of intercessory prayer from 12:30pm until 1:30pm in the church. Everyone is invited to join them.
We ask all parishioners to submit the names of friends or relatives who need prayers for whatever reason. You may bring your intentions to the group personally on Sunday, or leave them with the parish receptionist who will pass them on to the group. Praying for each other is a powerful ministry.
Please consider joining the group for the prayer. But also remember to bring your intentions to them or to the rectory office.
You can also e-mail the intentions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
CHARISMATIC PRAYER MEETING
The Our Lady of Peace Prayer group meets every Sunday from 2:30 PM to 4:30 PM in the Wave Café of the High School, 173 E 75th Street. You may enter through the ramp of 76th Street at the East end of the rectory building. All are welcome!
Following the 11:00AM Mass each Sunday we invite everyone in the church to gather for coffee, juices, bagels and fellowship in the High School Auditorium. Enter the Auditorium through the large doors behind the organ area. We look forward to having you join us.
CALLING ALL SENIORS!
All are welcome at the Senior Luncheons which take place every Wednesday at 1:00 PM in the Great Hall of the Community Center. Donation: $3.00.
