Father Jack spoke in his homily this past weekend about the request made by Archbishop Jackels to collect funds the weekend of August 12th for the town of Marshalltown which was hit severely three weeks ago by a tornado.
The Archbishop realizes that this is a bad time of year with getting kids ready for school and college but there is never a good time to ask for monetary donations. He asks that you find in your heart to give something.
You may place your donation in envelope marked “Marshalltown Relief” or loose check in the collection please write in the Memo “Marshalltown Relief.
If you write a check please make it out to St. John’s we in turn will write out one check out to Catholic Charities.
This collection will be taken up at Offertory Time.
Thank you and God bless.
