Father’s Day Remembrance Cards

The Catholic Women of Holy Disciples Parish will be selling Father’s Day Mass Remembrance cards the weekends of June 3-4 and June 10-11 after all masses. These handsome, spiritual cards honor our fathers, grandfathers, brothers, uncles, and friends with a beautiful verse inside them.

For those loved ones that have passed, we have remembrance envelopes that will be brought to the altar, along with the outer envelopes of the cards, during the Offertory at each Mass on Father’s Day where your sincere intentions will be remembered.

This is a special way to show your love and admiration for the fathers in your life that have guided you and provided for you. The cards and envelopes are only $1.00 for each name honored. Exact change is much appreciated. We are extremely grateful for your continued support.

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.
