CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
This Halloween family activity will take place Sunday, Oct. 27, from 6-7:30 p.m. in the parish parking lot. Come join us for a BOO-tiful evening of fun for the whole family! Decorate your car for Halloween and handout treats to our young parishioners. Kids can dress in their costumes and go “trunk-n-treat-ing” to all of the cars in the lot. We will serve hot dogs, chips, treats, and drinks for everyone. This will be a fun, safe, and free family activity. Email Scott Steinke at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the parish office at 777-6433 for more information. All costumes and decorations must be family-friendly.
If you plan to decorate your car, please register below. Cars must be parked by 5:45 p.m. because we close the lot for “trunk-n-treat-ing” at 6 p.m.
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”.
