Stewardship Report

Sunday collection:

Checks: $ 5,903.00
Cash: $ 2,280.00
We Share: $ 3,695.00
Total: $11,878.00

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.

WEEK 4 – SAINT ANNE’S NOVENA – BR. MICHAEL PEREZ, SSS

ENGLISH VERSION

SPANISH VERSION

Br Michael Perez, SSS, was born in 1944 in Upper Manhattan. As a young boy he realized that he wanted to be a Religious Brother when he entered The Church of St. Jean Baptiste and saw the Priests and Brothers kneeling in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.

He entered the Congregation on August 7,1963. “I have been honored to have served as Adorer, Education, Health Care, Formator for Lay Leadership, Formator of men responding to their call to be Religious of the Blessed Sacrament.”.

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.


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: olpprayercommunity@gmail.com
