Mass of Remembrance
Every year, Saint John Fisher Parish remembers the faithful who have died with Christ during the liturgies of All Saints Day and All Souls Day. To coincide with that, our parish honors the parishioners who have died and have been buried from Saint John Fisher during the past year with a Mass of Remembrance.
The Mass of Remembrance will be celebrated on Saturday, November 4, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. The names of our deceased parishioners from the past year will be read aloud at Mass. A reception will follow in the Church Hall. Please call the Parish Office if you plan to attend.
Family Bingo Night!
Kids, parents and Grandparents had a fun time at Family Bingo Night on Friday, October 13!
A Change to On-Line Giving
An important change is happening with on-line giving at Saint John Fisher. We have contracted with a new company, Liturgical Publications Inc., for processing on-line contributions. If you currently use on-line giving, you will need to make the change to the new LPi WeShare program, and stop payments made through your existing account with Parish Giving.
TO SET UP A NEW ELECTRONIC GIVING ACCOUNT: WeShare for Saint John Fisher is activated now and is ready to accept your registration information. A letter, with step-by-step instructions, has been mailed to those currently enrolled in the on-line giving program. Click on the “Give Online” icon below to set up a new account. Once you are directed to the new website, scroll down to “Sunday Collection” to begin the process.
TO CANCEL YOUR OLD ACCOUNT: When you finish on the WeShare site, click on the Parish Giving icon on the left side of this page to cancel your recurring donation in the old system to avoid duplicate charges. Have your user name and password handy. If, for some reason you cannot access your old Parish Giving account, you may call 866-307-7140 and speak to a customer service representative. Please convert your account as soon as possible, no later than October 31. All current accounts with Parish Giving will cease on November 10.
IF YOU WANT TO TRY ELECTRONC GIVING, now would be a great time to try it! The on-line giving program allows you to make a donation without having to write a check or bring an envelope to church each week. It is a secure method of supporting the parish that you control completely. Click on the “Give Online” icon below. When you are directed to the website, scroll down to “Sunday Collection” and click on the yellow bar marked “Make a Donation.” Then select “Recurring Donation” and fill out the forms. Have your bank account or credit card information handy. Be sure to enter your Contact Information to set up your account, and check the little box at the bottom to confirm your information. A temporary password will be assigned and sent to your email address. It expires in 24 hours, so you will need to log in to your account and reset the password. That’s all there is to it!
