Dear Friends in Christ,   

St. John is the first parish in which I have served that has, as part of its ministry, a Catholic Cemetery.  Although it has been a pretty steep learning curve, it has been made much easier because of the wonderful, dedicated cemetery committee who meet regularly and work so very hard, not only to keep the cemetery itself beautiful and are so faithful in plotting and marking the grave sites in preparation of a burial, but also help with creating the guidelines and policies that will ensure that the cemetery will be solvent and taken care of for generations to come.  I also want to thank all who participated in our Spring Spruce up at our cemetery last Saturday.  What a tremendous turnout!  It is great to see so many people out on a Saturday morning taking an interest in and making a difference at our cemetery. 

Everyone is invited to participate in our Memorial Day Mass which will take place at our cemetery on Monday, May 29th, at 9 a.m. If you have never been there, it is located on the corner of 109th Street and Maitland Avenue.  This is also the location of the original St. John the Evangelist church.  Please bring your own lawn chair and perhaps an extra one for someone who might have forgotten to bring something to sit on.  Following Mass I will once again spend time blessing all of the graves of your faithful departed.  It is such an honor for me to hear the stories of your loved ones and to take a moment to ask God’s blessing upon them.

If you have yet to purchase your burial rite at our cemetery, either in-ground or in our beautiful new columbarium, I encourage you to do so before the 1st of July when a price increase will take effect.  Even with the price increase, our cemetery continues to be one of the most reasonably priced in the State of Washington, and certainly one of the most beautiful.

I look forward to celebrating Mass with you and with our faithful departed on our parish cemetery grounds on Monday the 29th.  May the souls of our faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.  Amen.

Easter Joy+ Fr. Tom

Queridos amigos en Cristo,

St. John es la primera parroquia en la que he servido como Sacerdote que tiene, como parte de su ministerio, un cementerio católico. A pesar de que ha sido un aprendizaje, se ha hecho mucho más fácil debido a la comité del cementerio maravilloso, son muy dedicados, se reúnen regularmente y trabajan muy duro, no sólo para mantener el cementerio hermoso y son tan fieles en preparar y marcar los sitios de sepultura en la preparación de un entierro, sino también ayudar con la creación de las directrices y las políticas que garantizarán que el cementerio será solvente y cuidado para las generaciones venideras. También quiero agradecer a todos los que participaron en nuestra limpieza de nuestro cementerio el sábado pasado. ¡Qué tremendo resultado! Es genial ver tanta gente en un sábado por la mañana tomando un interés y hacer una diferencia en nuestro cementerio.

Todo el mundo está invitado a participar en nuestra Misa del Día de los Difuntos que tendrá lugar en nuestro cementerio el lunes 29 de mayo a las 9 am. Si usted nunca ha estado allí, está ubicado en la esquina de la calle 109 y Maitland Avenue. Esta es también la ubicación de la iglesia original de San Juan el Evangelista. Por favor traiga su propia silla de jardín y quizás una adicional para alguien que podría haber olvidado traer algo para sentarse. Después de la misa volveré a pasar tiempo bendiciendo todas las tumbas de los fieles difuntos. Es un honor para mí escuchar las historias de sus seres queridos y tomar un momento para pedir la bendición de Dios sobre ellos.

Si todavía no ha comprado su rito de entierro en nuestro cementerio, ya sea en tierra o en nuestro hermoso nuevo columbario, los animo a hacerlo antes del 1 de julio, cuando un aumento de precio surtirá efecto. Incluso con el aumento de los precios, nuestro cementerio sigue siendo uno de los precios más razonables en el estado de Washington, y sin duda uno de los más bellos.

Espero celebrar la misa con ustedes y con nuestros fieles que han partido en nuestro cementerio parroquial el lunes 29. Que las almas de nuestros fieles se marchen por la misericordia de Dios, descansen en paz. Amén.

Alegría de Pascual +   Fr. Tom
