St. John Catholic School 8th grade students were happy to offer their time and talent to help support the parish office with completing this year's Advent mailing. The students found fun in this service by including some friendly competition among their peers as to who could complete the most mailings within the period. We thank the parish office for the opportunity to be involved in preparation for this upcoming Advent season!
