Lenten Recap 

A big thank you to all the people who contributed their time and talent to the various activities that took place during Lent.  So many lives have been touched by the various outreach activities that included the Holy Week Adventure and the Children’s Good Friday Services. We are so blessed!

To date, parishioners have donated over $7,000.00 to support Brother Blaise’s work in Peru.  If you are still interested in donating there is still time.  Simply include your donation in the envelopes provided in the pews.

We made it from coast to coast!  To date, parishioners have logged 10,572 KM. During this Octave of Easter we encourage you to keep going and provide any outstanding numbers as we are striving to complete the loop to St. John’s NF
