Today’s Prayer – May 29
by Theresa Konitzer – Director of Religious Education
In today’s Gospel, Lord, You ask Simon Peter three times, “Do you love me?” Simon Peter responds, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” Jesus says to Simon Peter, “Feed my sheep.”
Lord, I, too, love You. And, I know that loving You also means that I need to take care of and tend to Your sheep. Give me the gifts and talents I need to reach out to those in need of physical, psychological, and spiritual help. Don’t let my lack of confidence, or my feeling that I am too young, or too old keep me from coming to the aid of others.
Heavenly, Father, thank You for the gifts You have given me, help me to use them to bring about the Kingdom of God ton earth.

Reopening Status – From Fr. Pete
Our Mass Times Will Be:
- With social distancing protocols, we can only accommodate about 85 parishioners in the church. We will use the social hall for overflow, with a limited capacity of about 40 people.
- Our primary concern is everyone’s safety, so if you are vulnerable, sick or simply apprehensive about gathering with others at this time, please consider staying at home.
- The dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains in effect throughout this phase of our reopening.
- Additionally, St. John Church will continue to offer live Mass streaming via our Facebook page.
