Thanks to St. John’s youth, our Easter mailings went out in record time. Despite their sufferings with paper cuts they forged ahead working in eight groups according to zip codes. The injuries were minimal but they got the job done! After all was gathered together for transport to the parish office to be taken to the post office, they enjoyed some free time in fellowship and a game of basketball. Job well done!
Please see the Bulletin for pictures.
St. John had a good year! A large majority of the Sunday offering envelopes have been collected by our parish families. For those of you who have not as yet picked up your envelopes, there is still time to do so. Please stop in the parish office and we will be more than glad to make sure you have them.
Using the Sunday envelopes ensures that your donations are posted to your offering account. Please make sure that you write clearly on the outside the amount you have enclosed. For those of you who are at this time using blank envelopes, please write you account number and dollar amount on the front. If you do not know you number then your FULL FAMILY NAME, ADDRESS, and DOLLAR amount must be listed on the front.
COME AND JOIN US!

Learning to share is a process that develops over time and education, it is not an innate characteristic that as human beings we possess, it is something that is learned little by little.
That is why at this time of Lent, it is very important and fundamental to share what we are and have. I want to ask you parents to motivate and encourage your children to think and put themselves in the place of many children who don’t have a house, who don’t have food. Children around the world and maybe close to us.
Each Catechist has a little box in the classroom, where each child will put their weekly alms. With this we will be teaching our children the value of sharing with others, as Jesus did.
