PRAY & GIVE Generously
On Saturday, April 12th under the guidance of their leaders, Bill Boy and Don Hourigan, St. John's Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts joined forces to collect empty bottles and food for our Outreach Food Pantry. We are grateful to all who participated in this collection, especially the many parents who gave up their Saturday morning to make it happen. Thanks to the Scouts and their efforts, the families that we serve will have a Happy Easter! Once again, we thank them for all they do for our community and for our Parish. --- The St. John's Food Pantry Volunteers
