I am on vacation in Minnesota with my Family. Please be kind to Father Albert during my absence. He is here to cover for us once again during this period.
Mark your calendars for our annual Parish Picnic, which will be held on Sunday, August 17th this year. Dr. Charles and Marianne have graciously offered to host it at their home since the park where we usually go is not available. Swimming will be available. Watch the bulletin for more details. The Altar Boys gathering will be held on Sunday, August 3rd at the home of Rob and Coleen.
Please make your contribution to our 2014 ADA. Presently we are at only 40% of our assessed goal. There are blank forms in he back of the Basilica. It is extremely important that everyone contributes so that we can make our goal.
As we settle into a more relaxed summer pace please remember to wear proper attire at Mass. You are in the Lord's house and anything does not go when coming to the Basilica.
May the Lord continue to bless you all.
Sincerely yours in Christ,

From its roots in the Old Testament temple worship, the sacred liturgy of the Church has always seen music as an integral part of our worship. This is no more evident than here at the Basilica of St. John. Whether your tastes run from traditional Gregorian Chant, to contemporary worship with our folk group, to our ethnic diversity with the beautiful music from our Vietnamese and Hispanic choirs, to the timeless classics of the bell choir and our outstanding Basilica Choir, we live to "make a joyful noise," at the Basilica of St. John. In the words of St. Augustine, "He who sings, prays twice."
