Vacation Bible School

Thank you so much to all of our volunteers, teens, families, campers, and parish community for your support of our 2015 Everest VBS! It was such a beautiful week fueled by the Holy Spirit where we were able to see our 80 youth lead one another in prayer and love of God and others. The whole week was an authentic depiction of discipleship and community as we prayed, learned, played, and ate alongside one another. Look to the bulletin next weekend for a group photo! We are so grateful for your prayers and support, and please know of our prayers for you and your families!

Abbey Faith and Music Fest at Daylesford Abbey

Have you thought about how your family is going to get in the spirit of the World Meeting of Families this September? The 2nd Annual Abbey Faith and Music Fest being held in Paoli is an awesome way to engage in family fun and faith while preparing for the World Meeting of Families and the visit of Pope Francis to Philadelphia. Information about Abbey Fest can be found by visiting this site: http://www.theabbeyfest.com. St. John’s is planning to bring a group to Abbey Fest and tickets with the group are only $25 per person. If there’s enough interest, we will also book a bus to travel out there. Please contact Maria Parker at youthministries@stjohnpa.org by September 1st if you want to be part of the group for this great event!
