Reach Out Lakota Supply Sunday
On the first Sunday of the month, each St. John family is asked to bring an item of non-perishable food, or a toiletry, cleaning or paper product to the Gathering Space before Mass. Place items in the basket with the sign “Reach Out Lakota Supplies.” These donations are given to Reach Out Lakota. Thank you for your support of this community organization.
Companions on the Journey
After the loss of a loved one, it’s normal to feel the effects of grief. The Companions on a Journey grief support group meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Hospitality Room. Here you can express your grief and learn how to go through the grief process so that you can begin this new chapter of your life in a healthy way. Please contact Ron Meyer 376-1277 or Karen Marvich 265-9375 if you have any questions.
Catholics Returning Home
Do you know someone who has drifted away from his/her Catholic faith? We may want to reach out to those disconnected from the church, but we aren’t sure how to offer support. As baptized, practicing Catholics, we have a precious gift of faith and love from the Lord that can be shared with our friends and loved ones. You can make a dramatic difference in someone’s life by simply reaching out to him/her and saying, “we miss you”. For more information contact Deacon Jerry Barney at 777-6433, ext. 121 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Share a Lunch
May 28, 9:00 a.m.
Thank you to all contributors and volunteers of SAL in April. Our next meeting (May 28) is during Memorial Day Weekend, and the agencies we support will be closed on Monday. Therefore, we will not be making sandwiches or lunches. Instead, we will be accepting nutritious, nonperishable lunchbox item donations. The agencies will then use these donations to assemble lunches when they re-open. Some examples of items accepted are: peanut butter cracker packs, applesauce/ fruit cups, juice boxes, commercially packaged trail mix, granola bars, etc. Donations can be dropped off between 9 & 9:30 a.m. in the parking lot by the pavilion on Sunday, May 28 or in advance at the parish office. Please contact Diane Claytor at 779-6895 with questions.
