We have a huge 2019 planned for our Parish Family and the entire area! Keeping with our Mission: To Know, To Love, and To Serve God in His Church and Our Community, we will be renewing and expanding our programs and activities as our campus continues to improve every single day. Many of the current Catholic Adult Organization programs like Bocce, SoulCore, and Boot Camps are now free for all Life Center Members going forward, along with our 2 free drinks during our Friday Night Happy Hour. We are enhancing those programs with upcoming activities like Zumba and Bingo. Additionally, we will be renewing programs like Faith and Wine and our Concert Series. Stay tuned for more information on these CAO efforts, along with the CYO sports and music programs that have kicked off.
But there are 3 huge events you should put on your calendar now, so you make sure you are here at Saint John and do not miss out on all the excitement:
Reboot: So Much More Than a Parish Mission
Thursday, February 21
Longing for more out of life?
Struggling to see what your faith has to do with your everyday life?
Looking for something to bring a friend or loved one to that has not been to church in a while (or ever)?
Chris Stefanick is an internationally recognized speaker and we are extremely excited to have him here for one night only at Saint John. This engagement is for anyone ages 12 to 112, with insights and inspiration on our relationship with Christ and how to energize your life.
