TO SUPPORT OUR GENERAL FUND
WOULD YOU LIKE TO INCLUDE CSJB IN YOUR ESTATE PLANNING?
Your planned giving would help to ensure that the dreams of our Mother Foundress, to continually address "the needs of the day," will live on into the future. We welcome gifts for specific purposes and ministries, for our Capital Campaign to restore and repair our sacred space, or for the general operating fund of the Convent and Retreat House where we welcome an average of 2,000 visitors per year.

THANK YOU TO OUR DONORS!
Thank you to all our donors who raised over $480,000 to replace our 114-year-old septic system!
Next, we hope to replace the Convent stucco, St. Marguerite's roof, and restore our cemetery.
Thank you for supporting our Capital Campaign to help us continue God's work in our sacred space.
It's easy to help!
To donate by check, make your check out to:
St. John the Baptist Foundation
"Capital Campaign" on the ledger line of your check.
Mail to: PO Box 240
Mendham, NJ .7945
To donate by PAYPAL, go to
and in the "purpose" section of your online donation type "Capital Campaign."
Thank you for supporting our ministries of retreat and spiritual direction which are needed more than ever in today's world.
The State of New Jersey recently stopped giving grants for repairs to religious structures, so this has taken away half our funding for repairs and restorations. The COVID crisis has also negatively impacted our funding for these projects.
