The Annual Fair Trade Sale, supporting SJN’s Care for Our Common Home ministry, runs Nov. 21–30. This year, the sale is virtual. While we will miss the colorful, festive opportunity to see each other while shopping after Mass this year, we have the added convenience of selecting thoughtful gifts from home. Read the flier.
St. John Neumann is a faith partner with Fair Trade Winds. The annual Fair Trade Sale is Care for Our Common Home’s only fundraiser for the year. When you shop online and use the code “SaintJN2020” before Nov. 30, SJN receives 10% of sales from all purchases.
For free local delivery, use code “SJNLocal” at checkout. A member of the SJN Care for our Common Home Ministry will deliver your package to you. Expect a call on Dec. 12 to verify the date and time of your delivery.
Purchasing hand-made, high-quality, Fair Trade products empower those living in poverty to change their lives and their communities. This is a chance for us to act in solidarity with artisans all over the world who are also affected by COVID-19.
Please call the parish office at 703-860-8510 to sign up for Christmas Mass (9 a.m.–4 p.m., Monday–Friday) before the office closes on Dec. 23. Be prepared with how many people will attend, your Mass time preference, and if you need an accessible seat. The only way to sign up for Christmas Mass is to call the parish office.
“I am my brother’s and sister’s keeper.” Genesis 4:9
The Angel Gifts Drive is for the children at the Laurel Learning Center. Run by Cornerstones, the Laurel Learning Center provides affordable childcare for children from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds with working parents.
This is a great way to act out Catholic Social Teaching supporting our community and putting the needs of the poor and vulnerable first.
Because of COVID-19, this year, children will receive gift cards instead of physical gifts. The deadline to fulfill gift commitments is Dec 6.
How do I fulfill my commitment to a particular child?
You have two ways to fulfill your commitment:
Bring the designated gift card to the parish office during business hours. Please include the child’s name and gift number from SignUpGenius.
Drop off your designated gift card or the financial equivalent in the collection basket at Mass. Please write “Angel Gifts Drive” and the child’s name and gift number on an envelope or in the memo line for a check.
