Holy Disciples Parish Update

As we move forward transitioning to our new parish, Holy Disciples, some things will take a longer period of time to convert than others. One such item is our Finances.

We ask that current parishioners who worship at St. John the Evangelist continue to write checks payable to St. John the Evangelist and likewsie, those who worship at St. Mary Magdalen contiunue to write checks payable to St. Mary Magdalen. You may continue to use your existing envelopes and on-line giving until further notice.

If you have any questions on this matter, please don't hesitate to contact the parish office.
