Stewardship Report

The Sunday collection amounted to $ 7,228
ParishPay amounted to $ 2,801.16

Total: $ 10,029.16

PLEASE keep St. Jean’s in mind when you travel or vacation. We rent every possible meeting space in the complex in order to make up for our yearly shortfall. The weekly collection barely covers half the Parish expenses. When our collection dips below $10,000 we feel a terrible strain on our cash flow. A heart-felt THANK YOU to all of you who are catching up with your weekly summer donations. It really helps the cause.
