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 email@example.com.
Divorced & Separated
The Divorced and Separated group meets on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month in the Hospitality Room off the Gathering Space inside the church. You don’t have to walk this journey alone. Give yourself a gift of time for sharing and support with others who understand. For more information, call St. John’s Parish Office, 777-6433, or email Mary Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fair Trade Sale
Don’t forget! Fair Trade Coffee, Tea, and Chocolate will be sold after all Masses in the Gathering Space on the third weekend of each month. Buying ethically grown coffee, tea and chocolate ensures proper wages for workers around the globe. For more information, please contact Gary Eiser at email@example.com or Matt & Elizabeth Waits at firstname.lastname@example.org.
