"A Virtuous Cycle"to Benefit 

St. John on the Mountain

Parishioner, Joe Ray, will ride 1500 kilometers in four rides (April 18, 25, May 16 and June 6) in order to qualify to ride in the Paris-Brest-Paris Randonneur ("PBP") which will be held this August in France.  Each ride must be completed within a set time limit.  The time limit includes stops for rest, flat tires, food and drink, etc.  Rides are unsupported, so whatever you need you bring with you on the ride or you find it along the route.  There is no "team car" handing out food and performance drinks.  So, what makes this Virtuous?  You!!  Joe is inviting fellow parishioners to pledge $x.xx per kilometer to sponsor him.  All  money raised at the end of the journey will be paid to St. John on the Mountain to support the church's operations for 2015.  The total amount of money will be based on the total kilometers completed.  If you would like to support Joe, please call the office 908-766-2282 or email the office and let us know how much you would like to pledge.  Assuming Joe successfully completes all four rides, here are some examples of pledges:

$/km        Total
