Blessings to our Respect Life committee and those who participated in our annual Novena for Life. And to all those devoted to protecting human life, especially through con-tinued encouragement and support of Pro-Life activities. May we all be strengthened through prayer in witnessing to our various attempts to defend life so that the right to life is enjoyed not just for some, but for all; born and unborn.
Almighty ever living God,
direct our actions according to your good pleasure,
that in the name of your beloved Son
we may abound in good works.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.

Make Your Donation to St. John's Online
You can manage your giving to St. John the Baptist Parish ONLINE using a credit/debit card. It is easy and allows you to set up automatic recurring contributions. This will help your weekly offerings to continue on an uninterrupted basis when travel, illness, or other circumstances prevent you from attending Mass.
If you sign up for a recurring donation, your weekly envelope mailing will be canceled (saving us the cost of these mailings is one of the many benefits of joining this program.) However, this change process submitted to our Envelope Supplier may take up to two to four months to take place. Therefore, you may still receive envelopes sent to your home for several months until the mailing cancellation has been processed.
If you are planning to use this program periodically to select Non-Recurring, Special Collections, or Specific Donations, you will still receive parish envelope packets mailed to your home. If you no longer wish to receive the Envelope Packet Mailing to your home, please call the Rectory Office at 716-873-1122 to cancel your envelopes.
To get started, click here, then select Create Profile to the right.
Simply follow the on-screen instructions to create a profile and to schedule your contributions. Any questions, please contact Debbie Popple at [email protected]
Thank you for your generous support!
