Hello, and welcome to our parish (website!)
We are excited to see you in our parish and we invite you to become more involved with your spiritual family. Here are few ways to get started!
1. Signup for our email list.
Our parish sends out a short weekly email that includes links to the most recent homily, information about coming events, and news about our parish. It’s a great way to stay connected and to keep up with what’s going on!
2. Like our Facebook page.
When it comes to online social media, Facebook is the ‘across the board’ winner. Our parish is constantly looking for new methods and mediums to share the Gospel and so far Facebook is one we use the most! You can find us on Facebook at: Facebook.com/StJohnJackson.
On our page we share many links from our website and often some last minute reminders of important events. It’s also a great way to interact with some of our most ‘Internet active’ parishioners!
3. Become a registered parishioner.
We use a database program in the office and its used to track contact information, envelope numbers, yearly contributions, Religious Education registrations, sacrament dates, and the charismatic gifts and skills of our parishioners.
All together, this information helps our pastor, and the whole parish office, operate more effectively. If you haven’t yet, register now or update your information online or contact our parish office.
4. Signup for a Faith Formation class.
Wherever you are in your Faith journey, we are here to help you take the next step. For more information, contact Todd Gale.
5. Check out our volunteering opportunities.
The amount of time and talent each of us gives is just as important as the treasure we put into the collection basket. With constant activities, we always have many opportunities for volunteers to come and help! If you’ve got some free time, check our volunteer page for current opportunities!
Our parish is truly a community of communities. We have many more groups, such as the Knights of Columbus, a Nurses Group, Card Crafters, Bible Study and Prayer groups to name just a few. If you’re looking for ways to become more involved, contact your parish representative, or contact me directly.
