Stay Connected to St. John the Apostle Church during Covid-19 Shutdown
We have been working on several ways that you, our parishioners, can stay connected to our parish while we are practicing social distancing:
1) Our office is closed, but we are checking our voicemails and emails regularly.
2) The church will be open Monday through Saturday from 8:00am to 5:00pm (Sundays from 8:00am to 1:00pm) for private prayer and reflection. Please maintain strict social distancing and no more than 10 people in the church at a time. Sanitize the pew before and after use. We'll have wipes by the side door. And wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before entering and before leaving church. Hand sanitizer is by the side door, too.
Due to the "Stay at Home" order by the Governor, the Parish Office is Closed until further notice.
Emails & Voice Mail will be checked regularly. Call 503-742-8200 or email
All Public Masses and Parish Activities Are Cancelled Indefinitely
If you are not getting messages via SJA Flocknote, sign up now. That’s the main way that we will communicate with our parishioners during this Covid-19 crisis.
Please mail in offertory envelopes or sign up for Faith Direct.
Use FORMED on-line or other resources to help you stay connected to the faith.
CONFESSIONS: If you would like to go to confession this Saturday, Fr. Maxy will hear confessions outside the church at 4:00PM on Saturdays except Holy Saturday. Father will be outside by the bell tower and parishioners will stay in their vehicle. There will be a respectful distance between cars to maintain privacy of the confession. This is in compliance with Church regulations as well as state requirements at this time.
DAILY MASS READINGS
Empowered by the Holy Spirit, St. John the Apostle Catholic Family proclaim God’s love through Scripture, Sacraments, Prayer, Faith Education and Service to one another.
St. John the Apostle parish has been a key part of the Oregon City community since 1846. Although the parish of St. Paul, Oregon, became the first parish of the Vicariate Apostolic of the Oregon territory in 1838, St. John's became the mother parish of the new Archdiocese of Oregon City in 1846.
