Spotlight on Outreach
St. John’s is committed to living our Baptismal Covenant to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbor as ourselves and respecting the dignity of every human being.

Peter Paul Silver Bells Christmas Tree You can make Christmas extra special for a Peter Paul Senior by providing a wrapped gift that we’ll deliver on December 11. St. John’s is sponsoring four ladies’ Christmas wishes this year. Look for instructions by the Christmas tree in the Parish Hall.

Annual Christmas Peter-Paul Luncheon for Seniors  On Tuesday, December 11, beginning at 11:00 a.m., we will host our annual Christmas luncheon for senior adults at Peter-Paul Development Center. The festivities will include Ed Schutt, the highlight of the occasion for our guests, accompanying Christmas carols on the piano, followed by Zumba (sadly, not led by Ed Schutt) at 12:00 p.m.
