Supporting Our Parish
Members of the Saint John of God community provide support in many ways including significant contributions of their time, talents, and work in the various ministries of our church as well as with financial contributions. Because we are relatively small in size and lack a base of geographical parishioners, meeting our financial needs is always something of a challenge. The major sources of financing for our parish are the Offertory collections at the weekend Masses and the Hospital Ministry collection which is taken up as a second collection on the first Sunday of each month (and its preceding Saturday). There is also an annual fundraiser which provides a significant share of total financial support.
To facilitate your continuing financial support of Saint John of God, the parish has set up an online giving system that can be used to have your Offertory and Hospital Ministry donations transferred from your bank account. This facility can also be used to make one-time donations to the parish and for special projects like pew renovation.
