We had a great time celebrating 100 Years of St. John Parish last weekend! Nearly 300 current and former St. John parishioners and grads came to tour the school, taste beer, and enjoy the Oktoberfest menu provided by Chef Michael Strimban. Thank you, Alessandra Brescia for taking amazing photos of the event. Check them out on our Facebook page here!
