Mother’s Day Flower Sale
Our annual Mother’s Day Flower Sale is returning to St. John’s for Mother’s Day Weekend Saturday and Sunday, May 7th and 8th. The sale will begin at 8am on Saturday, May 7th and continue all day until 7pm. We will be back again on Sunday morning at 7am until 2pm that afternoon. Get your Mother’s Day flowers and flowers for your gardens from us this year! We will have a whole variety of planters, hanging baskets, and assorted garden flowers.

Steubenville 2016
Our group is forming and planning for the 2016 Steubenville Conference at the Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio this summer. The theme is “Thirst” and draws from the scripture passage from Romans 5:8 which reads, “But God proves his love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.” The Conference is a dynamic opportunity to grow in relationship with God and others and then bring that back here to our parish family. We will be traveling to Steubenville from June 24-27, 2016 and visiting Hershey Park on the way home. The trip is open to all youth who are graduating 8th grade through high school this year. If you are interested in joining our group, please contact Maria for a permission form and more information. We would love to have you join us!
