The Saint John Parish Family and our local community continue to reside in an area heavily impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic. As such, we need to protect all those we love and are close to by conforming to the CDC Guidelines, Collier County Ordinances, and our Diocesan Directives. We are blessed to have implemented a significant capability to provide our Masses, Funerals, Weddings, Baptisms, and other Liturgical activities virtually, through our online streaming environment. In fact, we have recently been able to stream (and all our Masses are available to watch afterward, if you miss out) the First Communions and RCIA Initiation Masses so those who would not normally make it to those celebrations could witness the love and joy felt in joining our faith. It has been commented that we have some of the best Parish-level online Masses in the area, and even nationally. You can always view our online Masses at: https://saintjohntheevangelist.com/featured/sje-streaming-mass
We continue to improve our capability and look forward to the time that we can have our A/V Ministry assist with this now-essential permanent function. It has become clear that our extended Parish Family rely on our online Masses, whether they are homebound due to their risk of infection or for other reasons, or would like to continue to celebrate with us while they are up North. In fact, as you can see from our viewership since the suspension of public Masses, we continue to have a substantial weekly attendance online, with only a temporary dip when we opened the church up again for the first weekends of Masses:
We hope those of you who have utilized our online Masses have enjoyed the experience as best as can be hoped for when not here with us in person. If you have any suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact JP Boucher, the Business Manager, at email@example.com
