From the Pastor

My Dear Parish Family,

This past Wednesday, January 25, our Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M. announced his decisions on the Faith in Our Future final recommendations. I have included our Bishop’s Pastoral Letter in our Parish bulletin, as well as the results for our Cohort 6, which includes our neighbor parishes St. Vincent DePaul, St. Gregory the Great, St. Raphael-Holy Angels and Our Lady of Sorrows—Saint Anthony.  This information is available online HERE.

Our Parish will be linking with St. Vincent DePaul Parish by July 1, 2019. As the Bishop explains, the Linked Parish Model is when “Two or more parishes within a Cohort share one Pastor for the parishes involved but remain distinct with their own Pastoral Councils (linked parishes may prefer to share a Pastoral Council together) and Finance Councils (must remain separate), finances, census and sacramental books; whenever appropriate and possible, linkage parishes work together to share ministries, programs, services, etc. "

This is a very exciting time for our Parish, for St. Vincent DePaul Parish and for the future! There are incredible opportunities ahead which will only serve to strengthen our rapidly growing Parish while sharing the great joy which has now become a hallmark of Saint John the Baptist Church!

Please continue pray for me as I promise to pray for you.

Saint John the Baptist, pray for us!
Rev. Brian P. Woodrow, Pastor
