Coffee Fundraiser

We are once again partnering with Redwood Street Roasters, a local Edgar business, for this fundraiser.

Order forms are being sent home no later than Thursday, March 4 with School families.  All order forms need to be turned in to the School Office by Thursday, March 18.   Orders must be prepaid; checks should be made out to St. John the Baptist Parish.

The coffee will be freshly roasted by Redwood Street Roasters on Monday, March 22.  Volunteers will help sort the coffee with the anticipation of orders being sent home on Friday, March 26.

A Year Devoted to St. Joseph: May 1, 2020 – December 8, 2021

On Friday, May 1st, Bishop Callahan began a special year of thanksgiving, petition, and honor to St. Joseph with a special Mass. In case you missed the Mass, you can view it here. In the year ahead, the diocese will offer prayers for his blessings upon our families (Patron Saint of Husbands, Fathers, and Families), our beloved dead (Patron Saint of a Happy Death), and the special needs of our Diocese (Patron Saint of the Universal Church).

As we make our way through the year, several events, prayers and novenas will be available for publication in parish bulletins. It is, of course, painfully obvious for all of us to know that our plans often turn to dust in the midst of possible tragedies and sicknesses that come our way. Please follow the Diocesan website diolc.org/year-of-st-joseph for further information and possible events.
