“Laudato Si” Community”
The Cincinnati Catholic Archdiocese has created a program to recognize Catholic parishes and institutions that live out Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’ message of caring for God’s creation. The St. John Justice and Peace Commission is working to obtain that recognition for our parish. The program requires: 1) parish facilities to have achieved a Green Facility Standard, and 2) ten percent of households to complete a Household Green Assessment to encourage awareness and give families new ideas to care for creation. The facilities at St. John have been upgraded to achieve the required energy efficiency standard. We are now asking parish households to go online and take the Household Green Assessment survey here.

the hidden messiah: reflections on mark's gospel
Fr. Don has published his second book! In The Hidden Messiah, Fr. Don continues to share his passion and heart for scripture as he takes the reader on a journey into Mark’s Gospel. Fr. Don hopes that these gospel reflections will help people begin to understand what Jesus offers us and to accept the challenge to be the people Christ calls us to be, people who will share God's love with others.
You can also buy it on Amazon today, or visit our office to pick up a copy for $10. We also have a few copies left of his first book, Gathered In My Name.
