CONSECRATION  OF  RUSSIA  AND  UKRAINE  TO  OUR LADY  OF FATIMA

FIXING  GOD'S  HOUSE  (english)  (espanol)

The Parish Stewardship Committee endeavors to maintain, conserve and enhance the beauty and integrity of Saint John the Evangelist Church. We wish to preserve the unique architecture of the Church and honor  the people  who built it in 1893. Our goal is to capture and secure its original conceptual format while making necessary impovements and maintain it for generations to come. 

Facing that challenge, the Parish Stewardship committee has focussed its attention on two major projects, replacing the Exterior Doors of the Church and installing a new Heating System.

At the last meeting, the committee proposed the following designs for the exterior doors of the Church.

NEW HEATING  SYSTEM FOR THE CHURCH

The Parish Stewarship Committee, your Pastor and the Real Property Support Corporation [Buillding & Construction] of the Archdiocese are pleased to announce to you that a brand new Peerless Steam Boiler for the Heating system has been installed in the Church.

We thank all of you for stepping up to advocate and support the stewardship of the Church of St. John the Evangelist and generously contribute towards the installation of this new heating system.  It is our hope that the system will work to keep us warm while in the chuch and serve us well for a long time.

 

 The Parish Financial Reports  

The Parish Finance Council is pleased to present to you the 'Parish Finance Report' for the 12-month period ended June 30, 2021.  The Parish is grateful to God and for the incredible resilience  and dedication of our parishioners, staff and volunteers. Our Church finances and the Parish community remain strong. We thank you for your continued  financial support and prayers.

 

St. John the Evangelist Church is Open for Masses and personal Prayer  

Our Church is "open" for  indoor Masses, private and personal prayer. We urge all those who wish to visit the Church, to comply with the City and County of San Francisco  'Covid-19'  safety protocols.
The Parish celebrates Masses on weekdays (Monday to Saturday)  at 9:00am.
Masses on Weekends:
Saturdays at 4:30pm and on Sundays at 8am and 10am in English and at 12noon en espanol.  
Everyone who wants to enter the Church or attend these public Masses, is required to use a face cover during the whole Mass except for the reception of the Holy Communion. 
Ushers are urged to use gloves as a safety measure to protect themselves and others they interact by virtue of their 'Greeting and Hospitality' ministry.
Stay 6 feet apart from others when possible.  Avoid physical contact and do not shake hands, fist-bump or hug.
As you enter the Church,  one of the ushers will guide you or your whole family together to a designated pew depending on the number of your family members who can sit together without distancing.
All the churches are required to comply with social distancing protocols to place family groups together, while keeping them separate from other parishioners. Please do not change your pews. The Mass will be rather short, around half an hour, without singing.
In order to minimize any transmission of the the corona virus, we urge you to try and avoid 'socializing' while you are in the Church building. Please encourage others in abundance of caution, care and safety, to go directly through the exit doors, out in the 'open air' areas and return home.

La iglesia se ofrece la misa  en espanol a las 12 del medio dia. Todos los que quieran entrar el templo o asistir a santa misa deben tener máscara y usarla durante toda la Misa, excepto durante la Comunión. 
Después de ingresar, uno de los acomodadores los guiará a ustedes o toda su familia a un puesto designado, dependiendo del número de miembros de su familia que puedan sentarse juntos sin distanciarse.  El distanciamiento social requiere que todas las iglesias coloquen grupos familiares juntos, mientras los mantienen separados de otros feligreses. Por favor, no cambien sus puestos.  La misa será bastante corta, alrededor de media hora, sin cantar.          

Please continue to give your loving Sacrificial Gift to St. John Evangelist Parish 'On Line'.  Those who have not registered may consider "your giving On Line'.
