Are you concerned about the environment? Is there a helpful Catholic response to climate change? How are the poor affected by what is happening to the earth, our common home? If you think about these questions, or if you just want to read and discuss a hopeful and challenging little book, join our Pastoral Care intern, Leo Racine, and other members of the Collaborative in an enlightening three-week study of Pope Francis’ 2015 encyclical “Laudato Si’: On the Care for Our Common Home”.
The group will meet on three Thursday evenings: January 30, February 6 and February 13 from 7:00 to 8:00pm at St. John in the Parish Center Boardroom.
Contact Leo at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to register.

Trees & Trimmings, Saint John School’s annual Christmas Market, was held on Saturday, December 7 from 8am-4pm. Though the air was frigid, it was wonderful to see our Saint John School Community come together to pull off a successful Trees & Trimmings event! Local patrons came in by the droves to fill their homes with everything required for a magical Christmas – from the beautiful, freshly cut Wilson Farm trees, to the custom decorated wreaths, boxwoods and roping. Santa’s Bake Shop was a hit and the always popular Toy Raffle and Kids Corner were as busy as ever. Many thanks to all who of whom contributed to our annual Saint John School fundraiser that provides critical funds to the operating expenses and enrichment programs for our School.
All are warmly invited to an evening of favorite hymns and carols in joyful celebration of God’s gift at Christmas. Bring your friends and family – and a treat to share for the reception to follow!
