Our BINGO has been postponed effective February. After evaluating BINGO for a year our Finance Council advised that we postpone it until further notice.
SOME OF THE REASONS ARE:
- Very small group of volunteers to help run BINGO
- NO new volunteer sign-ups
- A small net profit
- A high liability risk to attendees and staff
- We are the only church in the Diocese running BINGO
We appreciate the hard-working efforts of our BINGO volunteers.
The parish office will be closed Monday, February 19th to observe Presidents Day.
The Sandwich Program needs a volunteer to be trained to take charge of the ministry, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:00 to 10:30 a.m.
MUST HAVE A VEHICLE FOR DELIVERY

Catholic Schools’ Week at St. John Catholic School could not have been more of a hit! Our students enjoyed many spirited, faith-filled, academic, and athletic themed days throughout the week, and it was one filled with the true spirit of this year’s Catholic Schools’ Week theme: Learn, Serve, Lead, Succeed.
I offer much appreciation and many thanks to our student council members who planned and facilitated all of the spectacular events. Likewise, I share much gratitude to the incredible leadership of student council moderators, Coach Joe Thomas and Mrs. Kristen Elliott. It was wonderful to partake in a week of fellowship with our SJCS families. May God provide you with peace during this final week before the Lenten Season.
This month students are "Shamrocks”. These are stu- dents who are life-long learners and work diligently to “grow and achieve academically, spiritually, and so- cially in order to improve themselves and the world around them."
St. John’s Catholic School wishes to thank the Knights of Columbus for their generous donation of $1,300.00.
