The rental of our facilities covers the remainder of our weekly expenses: heating, electric, gas, telephone, insurance, diocesan assessments and repairs.
We strongly suggest one hour’s wage as a just and meaningful donation. Please help support our work here at Saint Jean’s. Commit yourself to this community by committing one hour a week.

THE PASTOR’S REFLECTION
WEEKLY CHILDREN’S MASS
We invite families with young children to attend this special kid-friendly celebration of the Eucharist. The Mass will take no longer than 20-25 minutes. We will be singing child appropriate songs. Father Kamas will celebrate this Mass.
This Mass is also meant to afford an opportunity for children and parents of the parish to meet one another. So come on down!
You may enter the Community Center by the ramp at the east end of the rectory building. We will start the Mass promptly at 9:30 AM
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.
The pantry is in need of:
• Protein or fruit bars
• Peanut butter/Honey
• Dried fruit
• Canned low sugar/sugar free juices
• Non-perishable pasteurized milk
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!
