Who are St. John's parishioners?

How many people celebrated each of the different 7 sacraments? How many families are active in your parish? Were they donating treasure (money) and/or time (volunteering)? How many families used envelopes and/or donated through other means? How much money is being donated for “Parish Fund” donations? 

These funds pay for the everyday needs of our Church: salaries, power, gas, insurance, maintenance of our over-60-year-old building, and most importantly the celebration of Mass itself. 

How much money is being donated for “Together We Serve? These funds are forwarded to the Archdiocese for disbursement to:

Local Beneficiaries

  • CSS-Catholic Social Services, 
  • Newman Theological College & St. Joseph’s Seminary (supporting our future priest’s educational needs),
  • St. Joseph’s Priests Foundation of Edmonton (ensuring our Priests have a comfortable retirement),
  • St. Joseph’s College Ministry (U of A Campus)  
  • Rebuilding Sacred Heart Church of the First Peoples 

Canadian Beneficiaries

  • Diocese of MacKenzie-Fort Smith, 
  • Needs of the Canadian Church,

International Beneficiaries

  • Needs of the Church in the Holy Land (Good Friday),
  • Evangelization of Peoples,  Pontifical Mission Societies
  • Pope’s Pastoral Works,
    The Office of Papal Charities exercises charity to the poor and needy in the Holy Father’s name. Whenever disaster strikes around the world, the Holy See always responds with food, water, medicine, blankets and trained personnel. Be as generous as possible as we never know where or when a need will arise.

Our Parish is a vibrant parish with some Families having two to three generations still able to attend Mass together. Most of our Families bring their children for Baptism. Our Families bring their children here for their First Reconciliation/First Communion/Confirmation Sacraments. Many of our Families have their children returning for Marriage. Our Families bring their loved ones back for their Funerals of Christian Burial. And, most come back to celebrate Easter Holy Week and Christmas. We are asking all who attend SJE to think about how they may help the parish financially. Just $50 per month, which is $600 per year, would help us greatly, but all donations of any size are most appreciated. Remember: there is a tax benefit to all donations, which assists you and assists us.

Another way to contribute to the health and happiness of your Parish is through a donation of time. Do you have a talent or gift that would be very useful for the Parish in the coming months? God gave them that you might share them: we hope you will.

Remember: SJE is not merely our grandparents’ or parents’ Church, it now becomes our Church as well. Your generous donation today guarantees Church that the Church will still be here for you, your children, and grandchildren tomorrow.

Thank you kindly.

YouCat: Why are We Here, and What are We Supposed to Do?
Monday, January 23, 2023

When he wrote The Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien created a memorable group of characters to populate his world of Middle-Earth. Some of these characters are great and mighty, like the wise wizard, Gandalf, or the courageous warrior (and future King), Aragorn. Tolkien also created a very different kind of hero: Hobbits. Hobbits are […]
