What's Happening at St. John

Dear Friends in Christ,

     I need to ask for your assistance. We have seen an increased number of incidences where there have been people at the entrances to our property or, last Saturday, right outside the doors of our church asking for money.  I ask you to please not give them cash.  It is a scam.  It is a racket.  It is a way of life. This particular group of people target churches throughout the area only looking for cash.  Be assured that they are always offered assistance through St. Vincent de Paul which they vehemently reject because they are only interested in cash.  If you see them here at the church, please let me, a member of my staff or a member of our parking lot security team know immediately.   We will escort them off the property (in their brand new cars that they paid for in cash!).  I hope that you will offer them a smile, a blessing and even a prayer – but do not offer them money.  Do not enable or perpetuate this behavior.  If you really want to help the poor, please continue to give generously to our St. Vincent de Paul where the money will truly go to a family/persons in need. 

     Thank you for your kind attention to this request.  Let me take this opportunity to thank our volunteers who patrol our parking lots during the Mass.  Their vigilant service is deeply appreciated by us all.  If you would be willing to be on the parking lot security schedule, please contact the parish office.  More volunteers are needed.


Fr. Tom

Queridos amigos en Cristo,

     Necesito pedir su ayuda. Hemos visto un número crecimiento de incidencias donde habido gente en las entradas a nuestra propiedad, el sábado pasado, justo fuera de las puertas de nuestra iglesia pidiendo dinero. Les pido que por favor no les den dinero en efectivo. Es una estafa. Es una farsa. Es un estilo de vida. Este grupo particular de personas apunta a iglesias en toda la zona sólo buscando dinero en efectivo. Esté seguro de que siempre se les ofrece asistencia a través de San Vicente de Paúl, que rechazan porque sólo están interesados ​​en dinero en efectivo. Si usted los ve aquí en la iglesia, por favor déjeme saber, a un miembro de mi personal o un miembro de nuestro equipo de seguridad de estacionamiento inmediatamente. Los escoltaremos fuera de la propiedad (en sus coches nuevos que pagaron en efectivo!). Espero que les ofrezcan una sonrisa, una bendición e incluso una oración - pero no les ofrezcan dinero. No habilite o perpetúe este comportamiento. Si realmente quiere ayudar a los pobres, por favor continúe dando generosamente a nuestro San Vicente de Paúl donde el dinero realmente va a una familia / personas necesitadas.

     Gracias por su amable atención a esta solicitud. Permítanme aprovechar esta oportunidad para agradecer a nuestros voluntarios que patrullan nuestros estacionamientos durante la Misa. Su servicio vigilante es profundamente apreciado por todos nosotros. Si usted está dispuesto a estar en el horario de seguridad del estacionamiento, por favor comuníquese con la oficina parroquial. Se necesitan más voluntarios.

Paz+ Fr. Tom
