2016 Knights of Columbus Food Drive - Updated
It’s that time of year again! With the help of all parishioners, the Knights of Columbus council 15085 is able to help feed the hungry of Haywood County. Last year the food drive collected 2,000 lbs. of non-perishable items that was distributed throughout the county at soup kitchens and food pantries.  This year we’re hoping to exceed that amount by 500 lbs.!! We can do it! On April 23rd & 24th after all Masses at St John’s and Immaculate Conception the Knights will be handing out our familiar brown paper bags with the list of popular items attached to them. Then the following two weekends, April 30th & May 1st, and May 7th and 8th bring back the bags full and the Knights will collect them. After all bags are collected we’ll weigh them and post the results in the church bulletin. If you have any questions please call Jeff Schandevel at 828-508-6192.

Pope Francis has announced a Jubilee Year of Mercy starting December 8th of this year until November 20th of 2016. During this year, we are all called to focus on mercy – God’s mercy toward us, and how we can live more merciful lives as Christians. One easy thing you can do during this year is actually also fun – install a new app called “365 Days to Mercy” on your mobile device. It’s a free app, and it includes daily reflections on mercy, Scripture reflections, Pope Francis’ tweets, the Divine Mercy Chaplet, and a lot of other things you’ll find helpful. It’s not complicated or time consuming – in just a minute or two a day you can read a little about mercy. Is available for both Android and iOS.

We have a family in Waynesville whose wife and mother, Lety Tinajero , has received a devastating cancer diagnosis. The family needs help raising money for her badly needed treatment. If you would like to help, you can donate here.
