Cash: $ 3,042.00
We Share: $ 1,500.00
Total: $10,445.00

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.

DOWNLOAD MASS SCHEDULE  |  ST. ANNE’S NATIONAL SHRINE HOMEPAGE

This year, in honor of St. Anne’s Novena, we have added a special feature to the website. There is a new video streaming the impressions and memories of the Novena as related by members of the Blessed Sacrament Community.

Listening to the priests and brothers will help anyone who wants to learn more about the importance and historical and spiritual significance of this annual event which is unique in New York City.

WEEK 1 – SAINT ANNE’S NOVENA – FR. JOHN KAMAS, SSS

Fr. John Kamas, SSS is a priest of the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament, an international Order of priests brothers, sisters and lay associates that was founded in 1856 in Paris by St. Peter Julian Eymard. Father was ordained by the Servant of God, Terence Cardinal Cooke, in the Church of St. Jean Baptiste on May 31st 1975, and has been privileged to serve as pastor there from 1987 until 2000, and returned to that role in 2013.

Over the years, in his role as pastor, Father John has conducted 18 Annual Novenas to St. Anne at St. Jean’s. He attests that each year the grace of the Holy Spirit is particularly active during those special days. He has witnessed conversions, healings of body and spirit, and is continually inspired by the tremendous faith of the faithful who attend the Novena.

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.

St. Jean’s is one of the early benefactors of the program and continues to support the distribution of healthy, nourishing food to those in need. For the month of June, the pantry is in need of:

• Meals in a can (soup, stew, chili)
• Low-sodium canned vegetables
• Canned fruit in its own juice or water
• Olive, canola or vegetable oil
• Spices

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.
