St. Valentine Marriage Enrichment: “Growing Together Through Differences”
Saturday, Feb. 16, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. in the Pavilion
Must pre-register no later than Feb. 11
Free child care for attendees
Want a deeper meaning in your Valentine’s Day celebration? Engaged and married couples are invited to hear a light-hearted reflection on Marriage, which includes a catered dinner. Our presenters are parishioners Chitra and Ron Meyer. They have been married for 18 years and have two children. Having a marriage of different cultures (India and US) as well as different religions (Hindu and Catholic) has brought unique challenges which have turned into unique blessings to them personally and as a family. They will share their journey and how these differences have made their marriage stronger. The cost for this event is $15 per couple. Bring a bottle of wine for your table (optional).

St. John will be hosting an informational session on technology for seniors on Feb. 23, led by St. John youth ministry!

Pick up the form at the next Spirited Seniors luncheon or in the parish office anytime during office hours. Bring it back filled in before the 23rd so we can help give you the best information possible!
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.
