“As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace” (1 Pt 4:10).
St. John the Apostle Church started Electronic Giving after receiving many requests for this convenience from parishioners who organize their other regular expenses in this manner. Using Electronic Giving assures that our parish receives your offering in the consistent manner that you intend. A wonderful sense of communion with our faith happens when we recognize the presence of God in our lives and how we help build up His kingdom with our acts of good stewardship.
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Rev. Mauro Primavera
“For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has contribute all she had, her whole livelihood.” (Mark 12:44)
The Annual Appeal will fund essential programs and ministries at the heart of our Catholic mission in our four counties – namely to proclaim the gospel, to pass on the faith to future generations, particularly through the celebration of the sacraments, and to care for the poor and those on the margins.
Now more than ever, especially during this health crisis, our ministries and programs need your support.
Please consider sharing your time, talent, and treasure. Use your gifts for God’s great glory!
“For to everyone who has, more will be given and he will grow rich; but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.” (Matthew 25:29)

Almighty God, we thank you for all the gifts You have given us: our lives, our loved ones, all that we have and all that we are. Most of all, we thank You for Jesus, your Son and our Redeemer, who came among us to show us the way to eternal life. Jesus was the perfect steward of your gifts, showing that complete trust in You is necessary, and that giving of self is a most important part of following Him. May the offerings of our time, our talents, and our material resources be made in the same spirit of sacrifice that Jesus taught us by His life and death for us. Amen.
