Some children wish upon a star. This year, about 400 children will wish upon the caring generosity of our parish community through the St. John Christmas Wish program, which has been making wishes come true since 1993. Needed clothing and a special Christmas wish gift will go to youngsters in our own parish and in parishes in Roxbury, Lowell and Brockton. Christmas Wish invitations with Helper and Applicant forms have been mailed to all parishioners. If you find your family needs assistance this Christmas season, you are invited to complete a confidential Applicant form.
