Mission Preacher next weekend

Fr Bob Hazel from Cross Catholic Outreach will be here next weekend to serve at all the masses and talk about his experience spreading the gospel and being a missionary priest.

 

Online Giving

During the last couple of weeks I announced that we’re now offering online giving.  If you manage your bills online, why not give to your church online? It’s safe and secure, and you decide exactly when your gift is made and where it goes. So if you forgot your envelope last week, (or if you missed our second collection), you can go online and make a gift to the (special collection) fund or our regular offertory. Please visit our website www.stjohnshealdsburg.org to find out how to give online.

 

Vacation

I will be gone this week for retreat and next week to take some time off before Fr. Abel leaves for his new assignment.

 

New Assignments

Fr. Abel has been named the new pastor at St. Thomas Aquinas parish in Napa effective Aug 1st.  Please thank him for all he has done for our parish during the last 2 years.

 

I would also like to welcome Fr. Peter Nwanekezie to Healdsburg.  Fr. Peter is from Nigeria and is the current chaplain for Memorial hospital.  He has been living in the rectory for about a month now.
