Our online worker sign-up is already ready for 2018! If you like to plan ahead, feel free to check it out here. We are looking for many leadership roles for this year’s family festival! We need booth captains for the following booths: Bars & Bells, Volunteer Beer Tokens, Candy Shop, Fast Poker, Italian Sausage, and the Popcorn/cotton candy booth. Committee Members needed: Bid-N-Buy Co-Chair, Baskets Co-Chair, Kitchen Chair. Interested? Contact Joan at email@example.com. Thanks for your prayerful consideration!
Our festival brings in 10% of our annual income in one weekend, it is an important event for us. If you have any questions, please contact Joan Seibenick at stjohnwc.org. So many hands work together to bring our community to one place for 3 nights in August to eat delicious food, listen to live music, play exciting games and win prizes, and ride some classic festival thrill rides! We can’t wait to celebrate with you on August 3, 4, and 5.
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.
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 email@example.com.
Fair Trade Sale Discontinued
Our last sale of Fair Trade products at St. John Church is June 23 and 24. If you wish to continue to support this ministry, you can find Fair Trade products at local grocery stores. Thank you to all of our volunteers and patrons that have supported this cause over the past decade.
