We are so VERY GRATEFUL for the generous support shown to our parish family and friends, even during the pandemic. At this time, we are unable to accept contributions online so we are asking our parishioners to please mail your contributions to the Rectory Office at 313 First Avenue in Jessup, PA 18434 if you are unable or reluctant to attend Divine Liturgy in person.
Again, thank you for your generosity in supporting Holy Ghost and St. John's Parishes.

Eastern Catholic Formation/ECF: Religious Education Classes
Registration for ECF (Eastern Catholic Formation) classes for our children in Grades K-8 is NOW OPEN! Please note that due to the recent rise in COVID-19 cases and the potential risk to children and faculty, our instruction will again be done independently at home with children's first teachers, their parents. We will also have a Google Classroom meeting once monthly to reinforce instruction so please be mindful of that monthly commitment.
Please take this obligation seriously and put your child's religious education BEFORE all other activities. ECF not only teaches our children how to become closer to God through prayer, service, and knowledge, but it also teaches them what it is to be an Eastern Rite Catholic, and the beautiful traditions of the Byzantine Catholic Church. We welcome the opportunity to teach your child about his or her faith, and the ways of our beautiful Rite. Please know that we plan to hold in-person ECF classes in the fall. Please contact our DRE, Joyce Covaleski or our pastor, Fr. John Cigan with any questions at email@example.com.
