FallFest weekend is Here!

September 21, 2023
Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. John’s,
Welcome to FallFest 2023! We are so excited you are here! Please enjoy all the wonderful opportunities as we desire to share in Christ’s abundant joy all weekend long! As we gather this weekend, may we witness Christ’s presence among us. Jesus is alive! He is living and growing in you! As we celebrate our FallFest this weekend, we have a lot to celebrate! I invite you to Gather with me as you read this and Witness His presence and goodness! 
  • We have seen an increase on our reliance on prayer as our Mass attendance has increased the last number of weeks, to about 1600-1700 a weekend 
  • We have seen a willingness to grow as we gave out over 100 sheets with information about our Small Group leader training, which we focused on last weekend 
  • We had a strong response to live out of a Generous Spirit and volunteer at FallFest this year 
  • Our K-8 school enrollment has grown from 238 in 2018-2019 to 403 in 2023-2024 
  • Our 2023-2024 year numbers, had a surplus of $197,700 which is allocated to our Restore to Gather Campaign and getting us off to a great start 
  • Our Sunday giving is up year to date and over budgeted income 
Christ is present and He is living in SJB!

As the Father loves me, so I also love you,

Father Paul Shovelain
